Summer, 2015

As working sonographers, some of the advice we try to pass on to students and new sonographers is the importance of continuing education and networking. We talk about attending conferences and reading journals but the case study is also an important tool to achieve both goals. With a case study, a student delves deeper into the images obtained and broadens their knowledge about anomalies and pathology. In addition, by writing a case study, they can showcase their ability to articulate and use critical thinking.

The NCUS newsletter is a great place for a student or new sonographer to begin their path to publishing. Through a case study submission, they are able to get their name out as another excited, ever-learning sonographer. If you are an educator, student case study submissions can highlight the exceptional skills you are passing on through your college’s sonography program.

I encourage all of you to take advantage of the NCUS newsletter to spotlight your (or your students’) case studies. Case studies can be submitted through the NCUS.org Contact Us tab or to me directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
