As a graduate, you will be able to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, female reproductive system, heart and blood vessels. Sonography is increasingly being used in the detection and treatment of heart disease, heart attack and vascular disease that can lead to stroke. It is also used to guide fine needle, tissue biopsy to assist in taking a sample of cells from an organ for lab testing (for example, a test for cancer in breast tissue). Unlike X-rays, sonography is radiation-free imaging.
