The Misericordia University Sonography Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. Sonographers perform a diagnostic medical procedure that uses ultrasound to produce dynamic visual images of human organs, tissues or blood flow inside the body. Sonographers work in various medical settings, including hospitals, outpatient clinics and physician offices under the supervision of a physician specialist in radiology, gynecology, obstetrics, pediatrics, vascular surgery, cardiology or ophthalmology.
