Rose Delaney, a member of the Angel Medical Center Radiology Department, has received her certification as a Breast Ultrasound Technologist. This certification is a voluntary credentialing process that is designed to elevate professional standards and enhance individual performance.
A breast ultrasound exam is usually performed after a mammogram or clinical exam that reveals a possible abnormality. The Breast Ultrasound Technologist, using advanced technology, allows a more reliable characterization of lumps and certain abnormalities shown on a mammogram. Even in dense breast tissue, ultrasound can create an image that often allows radiologists to better characterize abnormalities.
The diagnostic sonographer is a highly skilled individual qualified by academic and clinical experience to provide diagnostic patient services using ultrasound and related diagnostic techniques.
