The Cardiovascular Sonography curriculum provides the individual with the knowledge and skills necessary to acquire, process, and evaluate the human heart and vascular structures. A cardiovascular sonographer uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of the heart and vascular structures.
Course work includes effective communication and patient care skills combined with knowledge of physics, human anatomy, physiology, and pathology, all of which are essential to obtaining high quality sonographic images.
Graduates may be eligible to apply to the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers for examinations in cardiovascular physics, vascular physics, and adult echocardiography. Graduates may find employment in hospitals, physicians' offices, mobile services, and educational institutions.
"The Sonography Programs (Adult Cardiac, Vascular, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Abdominal-Extended concentrations) are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) upon the recommendation of Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography."
