Academic Associate of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography

WCUI’s Academic Associate of Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography program prepares students to use non-invasive techniques for essential diagnostics as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. Diagnostic Medical Sonographers use special imaging equipment to create images and serve as the doctor’s eyes. Images produced by sonographers help doctors assess and diagnose life-threatening medical conditions.
