About The Program

Sonography or ultrasonography uses sound waves to generate an image to assess and diagnose medical conditions. The sonographer assists the radiologist in gathering diagnostic data for interpretation. NOVA's program emphasizes didactic and 'hands-on' practice of sonographic techniques in a well-equipped scanning laboratory. Students will gain clinical experience at area hospitals and private medical affiliates. 

Students select their specific DMS domain (Abdominal-Extended and Obstetrics and Gynecology (RDMS), Vascular (RVT), Adult Cardiac (RDCS) and upon successful completion of the degree requirements, program graduates are eligible for professional certification by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). A certified sonographer is qualified to work in hospitals, doctor's offices, public health projects, industrial medical clinics, and veterans and military hospitals.
