Sonography is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce images of organs, tissues or blood flow inside the body. It's used to examine many parts of the body and is increasingly used to detect and treat heart and vascular disease.


The professionals who perform these procedures are known as sonographers and they are in high demand. We offer two sonography programs at Community Regional Medical Center – the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program and the Advanced Cardiac Sonography Program.
