SDEP® (Sonographic Diagnostic Efficiency Protocol) is an innovative standardization of the sonographic process to maximize the image sets of traditional and alternative approaches and facilitate in-house or telemed evaluation. This protocol is repeatable by any type of sonographer with a rapid learning curve of standard and high-end views as it's hallmark.
All 3-day SDEP Labs are RACE certified for 22 CE credits.
Our educational Facility is located at 141 Main Street Andover, NJ 07821 (approx. 1-hour NW of NYC)
At SonoPath, we have a multi-pronged educational telemedicine™ approach. You can choose on-site training or attend a 3-day group training. When you leave, we’ll set you up to continue your training by sending your image sets directly to Dr. Eric Lindquist where he can help offer feedback/guidance to ensure you’re getting the proper views needed for full diagnostic efficiency™.
The 3-day labs include:
SonoPath can send an instructor to you! Learn in your environment, on your machine, with our on-site training.
Sample Onsite Training Schedule:

- Learn main knobology
- Bootcamp @ least 1-2x
- Learning probes (time permitting)
- Work on speed and efficiency; work on any ‘bad habits’ that may have formed over the week
- Knobology dialed in
- Extra views/trouble shooting
- Bootcamp ~ 3x- Discuss learning curve, and all the benefits/additionals that your staff can take to make sure they continue to learn and grow with ultrasound
Certification for the SonoPath Diagnostic Efficiency Protocol (SDEP®) is awarded to sonographers (DVMs or Technicians) with the highest level of sonographic image capture skills (still and video) combined with the most diagnostically efficient manner of obtaining those images as defined by the SDEP® protocol, as well as the ability to verbalize key points of the SDEP® protocol.
Certification is offered in the SDEP® Abdomen and SDEP® ECHO; each is earned separately and has its own practical and written tests. This certification pertains strictly to scanning competence, not interpretation.
Scanning competence is defined as the ability to obtain the views necessary to provide for a diagnostic interpretation by a specialist, including the ability to recognize a pathology or abnormality and interrogate it appropriately. Learn more about our certification programs here.
