• Tell your patients you are certified
• Educate patients about the different terms of Sonography
• Celebrate your accomplishments
• Encourage your colleagues to get certified

The sonography field has grown significantly over the past 25 years. From the development of cutting-edge technology and an increased demand of diagnostic ultrasound procedures, sonographers will remain in demand around the world for the foreseeable future (ARDMS, 4/2017).

ARDMS recently discovered that a technical problem with the calculation of scaled scores affected the Vascular Technology (VT) examinations administered from September 6, 2016 to March 14, 2017.  ARDMS is working with those affected for resolution.
