With the purchase of 2 brand new Philips Affiniti 50 Ultrasound Systems, the Mercy College educational experience has been dramatically enhanced.
Improved image quality, an intuitive user interface and ergonomic design have created an environment that mimics what students see and use in their clinical rotations.
Katie Hermawan, RDMS, (AB, OB/GYN), RDCS, Clinical Coordinator, in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program, showcases the new state-of-the-art equipment that DMS faculty and students have daily access to in the DMS lab.
"The ability to adapt to new technology is essential to being a successful sonographer. Having the privilege of being a student in the DMS program at Mercy College with the new ultrasound machines has been exciting for all of us! These new machines will allow us to become familiar with cutting-edge equipment and allow us to better perform in the classroom and the workplace. I have enjoyed working with the new equipment so much that I even spend my time after class working with it. I am so grateful for our new ultrasound machines!
– Abby Osborn, Cardiac Sonography Student
Much of the Mercy College sonography students’ hands-on learning experience occurs in the ultrasound lab located on the Mercy College campus; developing the fine art of transducer manipulation, understanding machine instrumentation and gaining confidence to apply their knowledge and skills in the real-life clinical setting.
“We strive to keep current with healthcare and diagnostic imaging trends as well as innovative developments in teaching; the addition of these state -of -the-art ultrasound systems allow us to provide our students with a well-rounded education and better prepares graduates to enter the profession with confidence.”
