This is a limited-entry program. Some of these courses are program prerequisites and MUST be completed before a student is considered eligible for entry into the Program. Students MUST attend a Health Programs orientation and meet with a Health Programs advisor for additional advisement.

Ultrasonography is a diagnostic imaging procedure that utilizes high frequency sound waves to image abdominal organs, vessels, the heart, and the developing fetus in the maternal uterus. Ultrasound can demonstrate masses, fluid accumulations, and other pathology in the patient. Ultrasound exams are performed under the supervision of a qualified physician. Students electing to take this area of study are prepared to enter the sonography field in the areas of adult and paediatric echocardiography as well as vascular ultrasound. The student, upon graduation, will be eligible to sit for the National Registry Exams for Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography. Upon passing the exams, they will use the designation RDCS (Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer).
