OTC Sonography Students Learn About Advanced Techniques.

The Echocardiography program students at Ogeechee Technical College were recently given the opportunity to learn about and practice advanced techniques and procedures using state of the art sonography equipment. The latest technology in sonography is “4D” ultrasound imaging.  According to Jane Stanley, Echocardiography instructor at Ogeechee Tech, “The field of sonography is rapidly changing to incorporate the latest cardiovascular technologies”. 

Tom Gonzales is an application specialist in cardiovascular ultrasound for General Electric (GE) Healthcare.   Tom has over 15 years of clinical experience in cardiovascular sonography and has worked as a clinical specialist for GE for over 3 years.    He talked with the echocardiography students about the future of sonography and technology advancements, and showed the students practical scanning techniques that they may use in clinical practice.  The students were able to participate in a hands-on scan lab using 3D/4D Technology, Myocardial Strain, and Tissue Synchronization Imaging.   Bruce McKean, also from GE, demonstrated a portable lap-top machine capable of obtaining diagnostic sonographic images in emergency rooms when quick triage evaluation is needed.  “Any time our students have exposure to the very latest technology, it improves their educational experience,” Stanley said.
