WCUI’s Academic Associate of Science in Diagnostic Vascular Sonography program prepares students to obtain diagnostic images of veins and arteries using high frequency ultrasonic sound waves. Physicians use these images to diagnose and treat medical conditions, so our graduates can be an essential part of preventative care. Vascular sonographers are specialists in the analysis of blood flow throughout the entire body. Throughout the course you will learn how to assess patients for a wide variety of vascular diseases and disorders, from transcranial imaging of vessels in the brain, to infrared detection of blood flow of the capillaries in the toes. The program can take as few as 21 months, and graduates are eligible to sit for registry exams through CCI (RVS) and ARDMS upon graduation.
