This course focuses on a detailed study of the normal anatomy and physiology of the male and female reproductive system, obstetrics covering all trimesters, breast sonography and vascular systems as it relates to the ultrasound field. Students will be able determine normal sonographic appearances and recognize variances and sizes of organs and vessels. This course will explore the hemodynamics patterns and spectral waveforms found in the male and female pelvis and obstetrics.
