Sonography Programs Offering Free Ultrasounds

Harper College's Diagnostic Medical Sonography Programs are seeking volunteers interested in receiving a free ultrasound. All participants must be at least 18 years old.

Available ultrasounds include: obstetrical (volunteers must be at least 18 weeks pregnant and have already had a prior ultrasound with their doctor; they will receive a copy of the images), gallbladder, abdominal aorta, upper and lower venous and arterial duplex, renal artery duplex, carotid artery duplex (participants must be at least 50 years old) and echocardiograms.

Exams will be performed by students on state-of-the-art equipment, under the supervision of a registered Diagnostic Medical or Cardiac Sonographer. The free tests, lasting about an hour each, are non-diagnostic. Volunteers will not receive a medical report, but may be instructed to follow up with their physician.

Harper's Diagnostic Medical and Cardiac Sonography Programs conform to all patient safety regulations. Appointments are required, and will be available through Friday, April 26.

For an appointment, call the Harper College Diagnostics Imaging Lab, 847-925-6104.
