WHY SHOULD YOU ASK TO BE SCANNED BY AN ARDMS® CERTIFIED SONOGRAPHER?
Certification makes a critical difference in the quality of an ultrasound study. Knowing how to perform a study accurately takes years of training and experience. Knowing how to read the images created with ultrasound waves correctly requires knowledge and skill. In all cases, the ARDMS® (American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers) certification provides assurance that a sonographer has obtained the full range of knowledge and skill competencies needed for maintaining the highest standards in ultrasound practice.
In addition to meeting specific education and experience requirements, sonographers must pass two ARDMS® examinations for each registry or specialty - one covering the basic principles and instrumentation of ultrasound and the other covering a specialty area specific to cardiac, general, vascular or other specialty imaging. ARDMS®-Certified Sonographers stay on the cutting edge of ultrasound technology and patient-care skills through ARDMS®- required Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs.
It is important to note that InSight Ultrasound Specialist's sonographers are the most highly qualified specialists in the field of ultrasound. All of our sonographers are ARDMS® registered with all holding registries in multiple disciplines.
1“In Sonography, the image acquisition is complex and operator dependent, and it becomes the diagnostic process. The subsequent reading confirms the completeness of the examination and validates the diagnosis but generally cannot go beyond the provided images. Thus, in large measure, the one who holds the transducer makes the diagnosis. ”
