“All ultrasound staff at the Atlantic General Hospital Vascular Lab are registered vascular technologists with specialized vascular training. They are held to strict continuing medical education requirements, keeping them current with the most up-to-date standards. They are part of the vascular team, along with our radiologists,” said Jill Todd, lead ultrasound technologist at Atlantic General. “Vascular exams can help reveal blocked or reduced blood flow in arteries and veins and assist with identifying problems that could potentially lead to issues such as stroke, poor arterial circulation in the extremities or deep vein thrombosis, among other problems.”
