Employee Profiles: Colleen, Sonographer
Colleen is a Sonographer who works for UW Medical Foundation.
My role as an Ultrasonographer is to produce high-quality, two-dimensional images for radiologist interpretation by following standard scanning guidelines and protocols and tailoring each examination to document pathology and disease processes. I am responsible for a written summary of findings before discussing the differential diagnoses with a radiologist.
The UW Medical Foundation Ultrasound Department has recently expanded to better accommodate our patients. UW Medical Foundation is very supportive, providing state-of-the-art equipment. Image storage has been digital for several years. When new ultrasound technology is introduced, the radiologists and ultrasonographers are trained and educated together. Being a teaching facility, we assist in clinical instruction for the UW Hospital School of Diagnostic Sonography, of which I am a member of the Advisory Board.
I actively embrace the UW Medical Foundation position in providing the greatest patient care and customer satisfaction. After all, health care service is all about the patient.
