What is Vascular Sonography?

The vascular concentration of diagnostic medical sonography is non-invasive testing that images blood vessels within the circulatory system.

Vascular/Doppler sonography detects stenosis, atherosclerosis, blood clots (DVT), venous insufficiency, evaluation of stents and grafts, and blood flow perfusion abnormalities. 

The vascular sonographer is a highly specialized, nationally registered healthcare professional. Vascular technologists must posses and integrate a thorough understanding of patient care skills, ultrasound physics, Doppler sonography, cross sectional anatomy, both physiology, and exercise physiology, and pathophysiology.
