Ultrasound Imaging Systems


The Ultrasound Imaging Systems program provides formal advanced training at METC. The instructional design of this program’s courses is group lockstep.

This program is a consolidated program with three military services that is designed to provide training on: equipment theory of operation, clinical applications, related physiology, circuit analysis, troubleshooting, calibration, and safe operational procedures.

Methods of instruction include, but are not limited to: lecture, demonstration, online materials, simulations, laboratory practice, and practical exercises on ultrasound technology. Quality control and safety techniques are emphasized throughout the program.
