August 24, 2023 – Santa Fe College’s Cardiovascular Sonography program will be hosting free heart and carotid arteries ultrasound tests in September and November 2023.
The tests are open to SF students, employees and the general public. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Both heart ultrasound and carotid artery ultrasound tests can be scheduled and are approximately one hour each. One or both tests can be scheduled on the same day or on separate days. Clinics will be held 8-11 a.m. Sept. 8, Sept. 29 and Nov. 3.

Cardiovascular Sonographers are often referred to as echocardiographers or vascular technologists. These technologists use ultrasound to create images of the cardiovascular system and Doppler technology to collect vital hemodynamic information from the heart and peripheral vascular system.
The goals of the SF Cardiovascular Sonography program are to prepare competent entry-level cardiovascular technologists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains for adult echocardiography and prepare competent entry-level cardiovascular technologists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains for non- invasive vascular study.
