Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program
Sonography (also known as Ultrasound) is the specific imaging modality that utilizes specially designed equipment to direct high frequency sound waves into areas of the patient’s body. Sonographers are the highly trained professionals responsible for operating the equipment that collects the images for interpretation and diagnosis by a physician. We hope this website provides answers to your questions about the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program at Polk State College, located at the Airside Center, Lakeland.

Imaging and Imagining the Fetus by
Publication Date: 2013-01-10
To its proponents, the ultrasound scanner is a safe, reliable, and indispensable aid to diagnosis. Its detractors, on the other hand, argue that its development and use are driven by the technological enthusiasms of doctors and engineers (and the commercial interests of manufacturers) and not by concern to improve the clinical care of women. In some U.S. states, an ultrasound scan is now required by legislation before a woman can obtain an abortion, adding a new dimension to an already controversial practice. Imaging and Imagining the Fetus engages both the development of a modern medical technology and the concerted critique of that technology. Malcolm Nicolson and John Fleming relate the technical and social history of ultrasound imaging-from early experiments in Glasgow in 1956 through wide deployment in the British hospital system by 1975 to its ubiquitous use in maternity clinics throughout the developed world by the end of the twentieth century. Obstetrician Ian Donald and engineer Tom Brown created ultrasound technology in Glasgow, where their prototypes were based on the industrial flaw detector, an instrument readily available to them in the shipbuilding city. As a physician, Donald supported the use of ultrasound for clinical purposes, and as a devout High Anglican he imbued the images with moral significance. He opposed abortion-decisions about which were increasingly guided by the ultrasound technology he pioneered-and he occasionally used ultrasound images to convince pregnant women not to abort the fetuses they could now see. Imaging and Imagining the Fetus explores why earlier innovators failed where Donald and Brown succeeded. It also shows how ultrasound developed into a "black box" technology whose users can fully appreciate the images they produce but do not, and have no need to, understand the technology, any more than do users of computers. These "images of the fetus may be produced by machines," the authors write, "but they live vividly in the human imagination."
A Practical Guide to 3D Ultrasound by
Publication Date: 2014-12-09
A Practical Guide to 3D Ultrasoundwas conceived with the beginner in mind. The guide summarizes the basics of 3D sonography in a concise manner and serves as a practical reference for daily practice. It is written in easy-to-read language and contains tables summarizing the step-by-step instructions for the techniques presented. Following introductory chapters covering the various technical aspects of 3D ultrasound, the book covers clinical applications of 3D ultrasound in the first trimester and for the fetal cardiovascular, genitourinary, and central nervous systems. Clinical applications of fetal anatomical structures such as the skeleton, chest, face, and gastrointestinal tract are also discussed. In addition, the clinical applicability of 3D ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology is explored. The book is highly illustrated and contains more than 350 ultrasound images, many in color, corresponding to the techniques discussed. A table of practical tips is also included at the end of every chapter. This book is a practical and comprehensive reference for the basics surrounding 3D ultrasound.
