Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Images of Life

Join the diagnostic frontline

A baby’s first photograph is not the one taken after they’re born. Months before that, a medical sonographer used sound waves to produce an image that allowed doctors to monitor the baby’s progress as they grew inside their mother.

But your work will involve more than charting fetal development. As a medical sonographer, you’ll be on the frontline of diagnosing many diseases and medical conditions, which first show up on what is also known as a medical ultrasound.

It’s a life-saving role in the health care field, and one which we have teamed up with Oakland Community College to prepare you for.
