Downstate's B.S. Degree Program in Diagnostic Medical Imaging
The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at SUNY/Downstate was the first ultrasound program in the United States to offer a Bachelor of Science degree. The program's 21 month curriculum integrates the basic and medical sciences with sonography courses, giving students a comprehensive academic base which is then applied to their practical experiences at ultrasound labs throughout the New York area. Specialty areas taught include obstetrics-gynecology, abdomen, cardiology, as well as duplex Doppler vascular imaging, neurosonography, and courses in new applications.
