DMS201 Advanced Abdominal Sonography
This course reinforces and expands on concepts learned in Abdominal Sonography (DMS215), with correlated laboratory scanning exercises. Emphasis will be placed on sonographic findings and indications. Case studies will be used to further discuss abnormal sonographic findings. Sonography of the small pars will be discussed with emphasis on the breast, thyroid, and scrotum. Basic sonographic evaluation of the pediatric patients will be introduced. Upon completion, students should be able to recognize and image sonographically both the normal and abnormal abdomen, small parts and some pediatric sonography.
