Vascular Technologists perform various diagnostic medical procedures through the use of high frequency sound waves to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body that are used by physicians to make a medical diagnosis. Evaluation and analysis of the hemodynamics (blood flow) of peripheral and abdominal blood vessels will be evaluated through the use of high-tech, non-imaging and imaging instrumentation. The Vascular Technologist must be able to obtain accurate patient history, perform high-tech diagnostic procedures, analyze technical information and summarize technical findings to the physician, provide quality patient care and collaborating with physicians and other members of the health team.
