We have a new opening for a per diem Cardiovascular Echo Sonographer. This position is located in Newington, New Hampshire.
The Cardiac Sonographer will be responsible for performing echocardiograms, or ultrasound imaging, to evaluate different aspects of the heart, such as chamber size, valve function and blood flow. Will review patient files and must be familiar with basic cardiac conditions in order to recognize and identify any abnormalities.
While cardiac sonographers do not themselves diagnose patients, they work with physicians in doing so or may assist in other diagnostic procedures. Other duties may include scheduling appointments, explaining procedures to patients and maintaining ultrasound equipment.
Qualified candidates must have graduated from an accredited 2 year program, at least 2 years post-graduate work experience, be a registered tech – either RDCS or RCS and have excellent communication and customer service skills.
