Welcome to the USI Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program

Diagnostic medical sonography, also called ultrasound, is the science of using sound waves to create a diagnostic image to investigate an illness, injury, or possible treatment of a disease. A sonographer works under the direction of a physician to perform sonographic examinations of many parts of the human body.

Sonography is a multifaceted profession consisting of many specialty areas. These areas include: abdominal, obstetrics and gynecology, vascular and cardiac sonography.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at the University of Southern Indiana is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) on recommendation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (JRC-DMS) in Abdominal-Extended, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vascular, and Cardiac concentrations.
