Vascular sonography is a specialization in the radiology field that is focused on assessing and detecting abnormalities in the arteries and veins of patients, except for those arteries and veins in the heart. As a vascular sonography assistant or technician you would be helping to detect conditions such as abdominal aortas, carotid artery diseases that may lead to strokes, diseases of the arteries that can lead to aneurysms, diseases of the upper and lower extremity arteries that may lead to peripheral arterial disease plus diseases of the upper and lower extremity veins that could potentially cause blood clots or pulmonary embolisms.
Specializing in vascular sonography is an excellent career choice right now. There are a great need for trained technicians and assistants who can operate this complex machinery and keep up with the challenges of this career.
