Cardiac Sonographers evaluate the anatomy and pathophysiology of the heart and great vessels of patients of all ages by utilizing diagnostic ultrasound. Their goal is to increase the accuracy of measurements and always strive to take the "best picture". They spend the majority of their time performing stress tests, transthoracic echoes, and TEE procedures. The team utilizes an ASE competency tool to determine measurement accuracy.
Variety, autonomy, and growth are three words associated with Memorial Medical Center’s Sonography department. In a typical day, the Cardiac Sonographer sees eight to nine inpatients for about one hour each. If they are not trained in a particular area, such as stress testing or transesophageal, Cardiac Sonographers can obtain competencies in a variety of areas to grow and develop their skills. Successful team members have a positive and optimistic attitude and never settle.
