A vascular sonographer is a highly skilled allied health professional who performs arterial and venous diagnostic procedures using high frequency sound waves. A vascular sonographer operates a variety of complex diagnostic and monitoring equipment, as well as numerous ancillary devices.

The vascular sonographer performs carotid duplex scanning, lower and upper extremity Doppler examinations, venous duplex scans, abdominal vascular exams, evaluates test results, monitors physiological states of the patient, conducts patient education, and maintains accurate records and protocols during and after procedures. A thorough understanding of hemodynamics and pathophysiology is required.

The Jackson College Vascular Ultrasound program is a 12 month program after the completion of the 12 pre-requisite courses. Application deadline for the Vascular Ultrasound Program is May 31st of every year. Students accepted into the program start the following Fall semester (August).
