Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound): Books

First Search is the BCIT Library search engine and a good place to start. 

It simultaneously searches the Library's book collection, many full text journal articles, reports, DVDs, and electronic resources.



**If you're searching for articles on a topic, you'll want to search a database which is more focused on health sciences than First Search is. Here is a list of some full text databases.**


If you want to browse the Library's shelves in the 2nd floor for books, videos, and journals dealing with ultrasound and echocardiography, you will want to locate the call numbers below:
