Using ultrasound technology to create images for assessment and diagnosis.

A diagnostic medical sonographer is a highly skilled professional who provides patient care services. The sonographer uses specialized sonographic equipment to create images of structures within the human body. Sonographers have direct patient contact and may provide this service in a variety of medical settings where the physician is responsible for the use of and interpretation of appropriate procedures. LLCC’s program prepares students to secure their American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography credentials and entry-level work in the abdomen and obstetrics/gynecology specialty areas. Vascular instruction is also included in the coursework.

The DMS program will be seeking accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
