Portable Ultrasound Allows STCC Students to Train at Home During COVID-19

 

"Professor Eun Soo Lee was worried this past spring her sonography students wouldn’t be able to attend in-person labs or clinical sites to obtain hands-on experience with ultrasound scanning. In the midst of COVID-19 related disruptions, Lee brainstormed and came up with an idea. Why not purchase a portable ultrasound scanner that could be circulated among the seniors? They could share the machine, scan family members and get the clinical experience they needed from the safety of their own homes." (more)

 

 
 

“We were just trying to survive during this unprecedented period,” said Lee, an associate professor in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at STCC. “When our seniors were not allowed to go to their clinical sites or to in-person labs on campus in the spring semester, I was very worried that they might not be able to do any ultrasound scanning this summer semester, which would put our seniors at a great risk of staying another semester in order to graduate.” (more)
