Course Description:

 

  • Medical Terminology, Anatomy, and Physiology (180 clock hrs.): This module is designed to provide students with the basic fundamental knowledge of human anatomy and medical terminology including body organization, cell tissue membranes, special senses, endocrine, musculoskeletal, nervous, cardiovascular urinary, reproductive and related pathology. Students will gain knowledge of cross-sectional views of the human body, basic math, and the fundamental knowledge to succeed in the ultrasound technology program

 

  • Vascular (360 clock hrs.): Vascular module will prepare students with an introduction to vascular Stenography. Discussion and lectures topics will be based on vascular anatomy, thermodynamic, special analysis, and cerebral vascular. Students will also be introduced to discussions and lectures of carotid lower venous topics, lower arterial studies topics, normal vs. abnormal pathological conditions, and telephotography (Prerequisite: satisfactory completion of Terminology, Anatomy, and Physiology module).

 

  • Physics & Instrumentation (360 clock hr.): In this module students are introduced to the nature and physics of the ultrasound, intersection of human tissues, image formations and display, subject of knobology, and 2D scanning instrumentation and their safety functions. Students will also learn the Doppler and color flow among many other significant topics in this subject area (Prerequisite: satisfactory completion of Terminology, Anatomy, and Physiology module).

 

  • Abdomen (360 clock hr.): This module is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge of the regional anatomy and terminology as it relates to the abdominal area and small parts. Upon completion of Abdomen module, students will obtain entry level skill necessary to perform abdominal and small parts ultrasound examinations and will be able to recognize organs and normal anatomy and some pathological conditions (Prerequisite: satisfactory completion of Terminology, Anatomy, and Physiology module).

 

  • OB/GYN (360 clock hr.): This module provides the basics knowledge and skills to perform first, second and third trimester studies; recognize normal vs. abnormal conditions, maternal complications, and fetal assessment. Special gynecological procedures are also discussed in this course. In addition, students are trained to assist Pornographers to distinguish the normal anatomy and common pathologist conditions vs. commonly known anatomy abnormalities and their conditions. Upon completion of this module students will be able to perform OB/GYN ultrasound examinations at an entry- level competency (Prerequisite: satisfactory completion of Terminology, Anatomy, and Physiology module).

 

  • Clinical Externship (360 clock hr.): Students participate in a clinical internship where they will gain hands on training.  Students are required to be available days and evenings for this module.
