Sonographers Expand Training Using Telehealth

Originally provided in-house, the training later expanded to encompass videoconferencing technology. Through telehealth, area sonographers in remote locations can connect to the host site, McLeod Regional Medical Center in Florence, to gain valuable knowledge and experience.
