The Volunteer State Community College Diagnostic Medical Sonography program is offering free ultrasounds for expecting moms in their second or third trimester this spring. The program organizes the scans so that Vol State students can gain experience with real obstetric patients. The scans will be performed in the Sonography Center at the Vol State campus in Gallatin. It’s equipped with six beds, HD screens, and state-of-the-art ultrasound machines. All ultrasounds are supervised by a Vol State faculty member. The students will be scanning on Mondays, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., and Wednesdays, 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., through the end of April. The scans usually last one-hour. Patients must sign a release of liability, and already have had an initial ultrasound exam before they can participate. To schedule an appointment please contact Kristie Sadler at 615-230-3322.
