SONO 123 - Obstetric/Gynecology Sonography I

(TP/SS only)

A study of fundamentals of obstetrics/gynecology scans of normal and abnormal anatomy. Fetal development, including abnormal etiology and diagnostic techniques, is presented. The detection of abnormalities, pathologies, and deviation from normal is stressed. Body planes, which must be scanned for an accurate diagnosis, are emphasized. PREREQUISITE(S): SONO 204  or consent of program coordinator. COREQUISITE(S): SONO 262 . Two hours lecture, two hours laboratory each week. Formerly MS 113.

3 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

a.            Reproductive system

b.            Pelvic muscles

c.             Suspensory ligaments

d.            Peritoneal spaces

e.            Pelvic vasculature

  • Recognize and identify the sonographic appearance of normal maternal, embryonic, and fetal anatomic structures during the first, second, and third trimesters:
