Vascular Technology A.A.S.

Vascular Technology is an allied health profession in which practitioners perform diagnostic and monitoring procedures using sound waves. The vascular sonographer performs examinations at the request or direction of a physician. Through subjective sampling and/or recording, the vascular sonographer proceeds with the examination to create an easily definable foundation of data from which a correct anatomic and physiologic diagnosis may be established for each patient.

The various types of ultrasound imaging equipment require a highly skilled sonographer to obtain the imaging information or other data required. The vascular sonographer must obtain appropriate history, physical findings, and pertinent laboratory data to adapt the imaging techniques to obtain comprehensive and diagnostic information.
