North-West College Invests in 4D Ultrasound Machines for Diagnostic Medical Sonographer Program

Acquisition Highlights College's Dedication to Training Students with the Latest Technologies

WEST COVINA, Calif.—North-West College (NWC) recently purchased two new 4D ultrasound machines for Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (DMS) Program students at its Long Beach and Santa Ana campuses. Designed to capture 3D images in movement, the machines open up a wealth of opportunities for individuals training to become ultrasound technicians through the College's program.


"We are excited about the addition of these machines and what they mean for our students," said Long Beach DMS Program Chair Cindy Rich. "We're seeing these machines used for diagnostic purposes, but also at 4D imaging centers, which are popping up all over."


These centers allow women to capture 3D videos of their child in utero and to determine the gender of their baby early in pregnancy. "The ease of access to this technology has meant an increased demand for technicians who know how to operate these 4D machines—whether in a fast-paced hospital environment or a more relaxed imaging center. North-West College students will graduate with this valuable skill."


Like all North-West College programs, the Diagnostic Medical Sonographer program pairs quality curriculum with hands-on learning—allowing students to put their newfound knowledge into practice. NWC students also take part in a clinical externship, which enables them to cement their skills through real-world training.


"Although it has been around for many years, 4D ultrasound has recently become a powerful diagnostic tool for physicians when caring for unborn fetuses," Chief Operating Officer Beylor Meza explained. "The purchase of these machines underscores NWC's commitment to equipping our labs and our students with the latest in diagnostic technologies. Our goal is to see our students graduate equipped to succeed in the real world."
