Morehead State University’s Department of Kinesiology, Health, and Imaging Sciences’ Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program will offer free, two-dimensional fetal ultrasounds to expectant mothers, who are between 18 and 33 weeks of pregnancy.

The ultrasound examinations will be given Jan. 16 through Feb. 27 and are available by appointment only on the fourth floor of the Center for Health, Education and Research, Room 402, in the University’s sonography lab.

The scans are performed by senior-level students who will be directly supervised by associate professor Marcia Cooper. She is certified in obstetrics and gynecology by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers. The fetal ultrasound scans provide students the experience they need to enter into the sonography workforce.

All volunteers will be asked to sign a consent form stating that the scans are “non-diagnostic” and are performed for educational purposes only. Participants are asked to bring a towel.

Additional information and appointment times are available by calling 606-783-2646.
