This course reinforces and expands on concepts learned in Abdominal Sonography (DMS218), 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 superficial structures will be discussed with emphasis on the breast, thyroid, and scrotum. Sonographic evaluation of the musculoskeletal system, neonatal brain and spine will also be discussed and students will be introduced to the basics of vascular sonography. Upon completion, students should be able to recognize and image sonographically both normal and abnormal abdominal and superficial anatomy. 60 contact hours.
