NEW Cardiovascular Sonography Program
NPCollege is proud to announce the start of two CARDIOVASCULAR programs designed to train current Medical Sonography professionsals as well as those without any prior experience or knowledge and wish to become certified Cardiovascular Sonographers by way of full training and achieve certification through ARRT, CCI and ARDMS.
CARDIOVASCULAR SONOGRAPHY (ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY)
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart.
WHAT DOES A CARDIOVASCULAR TECHNOLOGIST DO?
Cardiovascular Technicians are sometimes referred to as Echocardiographers, Echo Technologists, or Cardiac sonographers. The primary responsibility of an echo tech is to gather data that can be used by a physician to diagnose heart diseases. They conduct tests on pulmonary or cardiovascular systems of patients for diagnostic, therapeutic, or research purposes. May conduct or assist in electrocardiograms, cardiac catheterizations, pulmonary functions, lung capacity, and similar tests.
A Cardiovascular technologist specializes in using non-invasive imaging technology to analyze a patient’s heart, specifically the function of its veins, arteries, chambers, and valves. The Cardiovascular tech main responsibility is to calibrate and use medical diagnostic imaging machines to take images of a patient’s heart.
