Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography Technician

Echocardiography is also known as Non-invasive Cardiovascular Sonography (NICVS) is involved in medical imaging of the heart and blood vessels. This program provides information related to the functioning of the heart and blood vessels. NICVS makes it easier to diagnose heart diseases. This program gives an understanding of how the technology involved in Echocardiography works.

Echocardiography / Noninvasive Cardiovascular Sonographer

Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Sonography (NICVS), also called Echocardiography (or Echo), is a diagnostic modality used for medical imaging of heart & blood vessels. It is a powerful tool that can offer a wealth of information about the human heart and peripheral blood vessels. Echocardiography (cardiac ultrasound) is performed by using a specialized scanner called a transducer (or probe) which is connected with the echo machine. The transducer, after attaching to the skin of the chest, produces high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) that are transmitted into the human body. These ultrasound waves reflect from heart/blood vessels to the transducer. From a transducer, the sound waves are then transformed into images on the screen of the echo machine. These cardiovascular images provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of heart and blood vessel diseases. Therefore Cardiovascular Sonography has become the most widely used imaging modality in modern medicine and it will continue to expand. The Program offers an in-depth explanation of how Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Sonography works.
