DMSG1411 Diagnostic Medical Sonography II

Course Description

Students will be exposed to different pathologies of the male and female reproductive systems, obstetrics covering all trimesters, breast and vascular systems. This course will focus on ultrasound findings, scanning techniques, patient history, laboratory data, and other imaging modalities to help better understand how to interpret pathology. Emphasis will focus on descriptive and anatomical terminology, clinic data, grayscale imaging, protocols, and Doppler characteristics as seen with various pathologies.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Determine sonographic technique and protocols used to evaluate the male and female pelvis.
  • Identify normal and abnormal sonographic appearances of the male and female pelvis.
  • Determine sonographic technique and protocol used to evaluate the female breast.
  • Identify normal and abnormal sonographic appearances of the female breast.
  • Evaluate sonographic technique and protocols used for the first, second and third trimester obstetric ultrasound.
  • Identify normal and abnormal sonographic appearances of the fetus during the first, second and third trimester.
  • Conduct obstetric measurements used for gestational age and fetal growth assessment.
  • List risk factors associated with vascular disease.
  • Differentiate sonographic techniques and protocols used to evaluate the extracranial cerebrovascular and peripheral vascular systems.
  • Recognize sonographic vascular anatomy of the extracranial cerebrovascular and peripheral vascular systems, along with the use of Doppler to determine the presence of vascular disease.
