Vascular Sonography utilizes ultrasound to perform diagnostic testing on patients’ arteries and veins.
The vascular sonographer will utilize state-of the-art equipment to interrogate the vessels, record images/measurements, and study hemodynamic data derived from vascular testing. Vascular Sonography is primarily used in the diagnosis of blood clots, blockages, and aneurysms. Upon diagnosis, these can be treated by a licensed physician or vascular surgeon.
The Vascular Sonography Certificate is designed for students currently working and registered in the sonography field. Admission to the program is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Prospective students must hold a current (non-expired) sonography credential with the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) or Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI). [Examples: Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (RDCS), Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS), Registered Cardiac Sonographer (RCS), Advanced Cardiac Sonographer (ACS), or Registered Congenital Cardiac Sonographer (RCCS)]. Upon, successful completion of the program, students will be able to sit for the Vascular Technologist exam through ARDMS. This certificate can be completed in two consecutive semesters (Spring term and Summer term) with a total of 16 credit hours.
