Girls in Science Ultrasound Technology

Thank you to Ursula Slater, BCS mom, and Diagnostic Medical Sonographer at Butler Health System, for speaking to our Girls in Science after school club about ultrasound technology. Ursula shared with the girls about her career, and how an ultrasound technician helps doctors diagnose patients using moving pictures of internal structures with sound waves. Each girl then got a chance to act just like a real ultrasound technician by using an ultrasound machine to see the flow of blood in each other’s neck.
