Diagnostic Medical Sonography: Images & videos

Starting point for Diagnostic Medical Sonography research


There are two databases with images you can download to use in your assignments and presentations.

This database has images of professionals performing scans, as well as a few ultrasound images. This is a good place to find stock photos of patient interactions and transducers. There are a ton of images!

Example from Britannica ImageQuest:

Cite and download links in Britannica ImageQuest

Select the Illustrations tab and Ultrasonography or Ultrasonography - Obstetric to find some images (fewer than Britannica). There are also some useful anatomy colour plates.

But what if I found the perfect image in Google?

You need to go into Search Tools and only use ones that are "Labelled for reuse" (either with or without modifications - i.e. are you adding or removing something from the original picture?). Since it is coursework, it counts as noncommercial use.

Google Image search for Dental Care

You still need to give the original creator credit for their work by using a citation.

Films on Demand

The Library's subscription to Films On Demand is a great source of videos on many topics. Search using the drop-down subjects menu or do a keyword search. All videos are broken up into segments, so they're great for showing during presentations!

Note: a login may be required for access.

Example: Medical Sonographer - Career Q&A: Professional Advice and Insight (USA, 2015)

Citing images in APA

See the Online Images tab of the SAIT Library APA Guide. 

Note: Many images will not have all of the pieces of information that you need to create a citation. If you are missing information, scroll down to the bottom of the Online Images tab in the SAIT Library APA guide to find your scenario and its solution in the "What if..." box.

What about YouTube?

Nope, YouTube doesn't own the videos either!

You would need to contact the original creator of the video to ask for permission before using it. 

To save you time and effort, use the Library's video databases when possible. These videos have been cleared for class use.
