…where advanced technical knowledge and great human compassion are combined all in one.
Did you know that of all the medical imaging modalities, Ultrasound is the most operator dependent?
Diagnostic medical sonography is becoming increasingly important in modern medicine. But what qualities make up a truly great sonographer? Training, skills, personality? I would say all the above.
What makes a sonographer a truly great one as opposed to a good one?
- Compassion and interpersonal skills: Some patients may be nervous or worried about the problem it may reveal. It is important to make the patient comfortable and be reassuring.
- Technical skills, Eye-Hand Coordination: Remember you will rarely see a doctor while the sonographer is performing your ultrasound. This means the doctor(s) will rely on the sonographer to find what they are looking for. This makes the sonography skills a very crucial job.
- Keen Lerner/Teacher
- Mental Strength …and the list goes on.
At Vein Clinics of Lake County, we take pride in having the most qualified sonographer available to all our patients.
Courtney has been with us since VCLC was founded in 2013. She started as an RVT (Registered Vascular Technician). In addition to her great skills in Vascular Ultrasound, she expanded her focus to include the field of venous disease (such as varicose veins and Deep Vein Thrombosis).
Determined to be the best, to bring you the best, she pursued further certification.
Courtney is now a RPhS (Registered Phlebology Sonographer). She is one of a very few in the region that holds such highly qualifying status. Acknowledging her expertise, she was asked to speak at the last Congress of American College of Phlebology (ACP).
Aside from her great skills as sonographer, Courtney is very compassionate. She has a fun personality which makes patients laugh (a lot), while making them feel comfortable as they come to our office.
