STATE COLLEGE — Paul Wagner, creator and director of South Hills’ Diagnostic Medical Sonography (DMS) program, has co-authored a book titled Study Guide and Laboratory Exercises for Technology for Diagnostic Sonography, published by Elsevier, a leading publisher of health science books and journals.
Written with medical physicist Wayne Hedrick, Ph.D., this first-of-its-kind book corresponds to chapters in Hedrick’s Technology and Diagnostic Sonography. It will become part of the DMS curriculum at South Hills.
The study guide, which includes laboratory exercises and knowledge assessment, will help DMS students master sonography physics and instrumentation by providing step-by-step instructions for scanner operation.
A new book authored by Wagner and Hedrick, Point-of-Care Ultrasound Fundamentals: Principles, Devices, and Patient Safety, will soon be published by McGraw Hill.
