Calling all BCIT Students – Come for a Scan

Are you a BCIT student and interested in Sonography? What we do? How ultrasounds work? What your organs look like? Look no further, you can come and learn for yourself. I have been blogging about Sonography since September but if you want to actually experience it you can come into our lab and get scanned by us students. It allows us to practice and it will be fun for you too. Win win.

All you have to do is comment below. Only I will be able to see your email address and will privately message you.

If you don’t comment below you can approach us at school, we are in the postman blue scrubs in NE01. We are all friendly and won’t bite, we might fight each other to scan you. All you need is to be a current BCIT student and to fill out a consent form with your A number and contact information.

Disclaimer: We are not a trained professional and these scans do not replace a full diagnostic study. There have been times where abnormality or normal variant have been found and a follow up with your doctor may be encouraged.

Here are some scan routines we may perform:

1. Full Abdominal: Aorta, Inferior Vena Cava, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, spleen and kidneys

2. Cardiac

3. Pelvic: Uterus, ovaries, prostate and bladder

4. Carotids

5. Leg Veins

This semester is ending, and the Sonography students will be off to clinicals, but we come back in September. I can help arrange time, date and a student Sonographer. If you have concerns let me know, I will do my best to address them or send you to someone who will be able to help. We have had students come from a wide range of programs at BCIT in the past, such as architect, millwright, x-ray, nuclear med, nursing, med lab, biomedical and even some faculty members. It is a fun experience, you will be able to see what we are seeing. We have dual screens one for the “patient” to use and one for us to use. Give me a shout!
