SON 212 - Principles of Neonatal Neurosonolgy


This online course provides the student with an extensive, comprehensive knowledge of neonatal neuro and spinal sonology. Patterns of normal anatomical development, physiology, and pathophysiology of the infant brain and spine will be analyzed and compared with their representative cross-sectional sonographic images. Scanning protocols incorporating technical, procedural and medical considerations in the performance of imaging the neonate will be evaluated. Presentations of case studies through discussion board conferences promote the process of critical analysis in arriving at various differential diagnoses.

Prerequisite(s): This course is designed for registered sonographers who must provide documentation that they have successfully achieved registry status by taking the national American Registry of Diagnostic Sonography board examinations. Non-registered sonographers can provide documentation that they have completed an ultrasound program and are eligible to take the ARDMS boards, or they can provide a letter from the appropriate Program or Medical Director stating that they have met all the requirements necessary to take the board examinations. Permission may be granted based upon evaluation by the instructor with regard to the applicant’s credentials for other qualified medical personnel.
