Cardiovascular Sonography, A.T.C

 

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN BEING A VITAL PART OF A CARDIAC TEAM?

The Cardiovascular Sonography program is a 12-credit hour Advanced Technical Certificate that prepares graduates and current sonographers on the imaging techniques for non-invasive vascular and cardiovascular sonographic imaging. These technologists use ultrasonic sound waves to examine the heart chambers, valves, and vessels and create images called echocardiograms as well as evaluate pulses and assess blood flow in arteries and veins by listening to the vascular flow sounds for abnormalities, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, cerebral circulation, peripheral circulation, and abdominal circulation.  Topics and scanning skills will be applied in the campus lab as well as in a clinical environment.
