Specific attention is given to fetal development, fetal anomalies, abnormal pre-natal and maternal conditions as they relate to sonographic scanning and interpreting of images. Although the student is still under the supervision of a RDMS professional, the student is expected to perform sonographic procedures independently as a regular portion of this course. The completion of professional and technical scanning proficiencies are required. A minimum of 470 clinical hours are required for successful completion of this course. Course focus: Prerequisites of this course are DMS-110 Interpretation I, DMS-105 Sonographic Technique and DMS-122 Clinical Experience I. Co-requisites to this course are DMS-211 and DMS-206.
