Vascular Technology in Sonography
The Diagnostic Medical Sonographer performs diagnostic ultrasound procedures under the supervision of a physician. The sonographer collects essential patient data to aid in diagnosis. The Vascular Technology in Sonography certificate provides an avenue for those already in the diagnostic medical sonography setting to cross train into another specialty. This is done through didactic instruction, laboratory hands on training and practice needed for employment training in vascular technology in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. This advanced certificate will enhance and extend the current skill set of the Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographers throughout the community. This will make the individual more marketable in many health care agencies that call for multi-competent practitioners. Employment opportunities are excellent in hospitals, medical centers and other health care agencies.
