SonographyEarn your Associates Degree in Applied Science
Ultrasound is used as a diagnostic tool that involves directing high frequency sound waves at tissues in the body to generate images of different organs and blood vessels. This technology is used at almost every medical facility in the country to diagnose different pathologies including specific diseases of the heart and most of the body’s blood vessels. The Cardiovascular Sonography program offered at MedQuest College Lexington, KY campus, prepares students to become a Cardiac Sonographer or a Vascular Sonographer.
The training received through this rigorous program will not only train students in a rewarding up and coming field, but will give them the ability to receive their Associates Degree in Applied Science.
The Sonography program is offered at our new, state-of-the-art facility which is located in Lexington, KY. About 50% of the training our students receive is hands-on; this training is then refined during clinicals where students work alongside doctors, technologists, and other staff members. The clinical training prepares students to work in every type of facility ranging from large hospitals to small outpatient clinics. Not only will students be trained in the art of ultrasound, they will graduate with valuable skills such as patient care techniques, resume building skills, professional development, and a background in medical and legal ethics.
Prior to graduating from our Cardiovascular program, each student works one-on-one with the Director of Career Services to build a professional resume, practice interviewing skills and prepare for the real life working environment. Even after graduation, MedQuest will continue to provide our alumni with the same benefits even if it has been ten years since the student received their degree!
MedQuest College remains steadfast in our dedication to keeping our students informed. For a complete list of Disclosures, please click here.

I would recommend MedQuest to everyone I know
I leave every day having learned something new. Every day we do something hands-on and the teachers are wonderful. Our small class sizes help to grasp the concepts better. The available technology and resources really help you to understand the dental office better. I have absolutely no complaints about this school.

I have learned a lot, and by the end of my classes, I will be prepared for a good job at a dental office. It is all because I was well-prepared by the instructors. It has everything you need to learn.
