Vascular Technology is a unique specialty within the field of Diagnostic Medical Sonography. A wide range of instrumentation is used to acquire and record information related to blood vessel anatomy and physiology, therefore, vascular technologists are highly skilled professionals that assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of disorders affecting the vascular system (excluding the heart).

Vascular technology includes non-invasive vascular studies that provide essential information regarding the blood supply to and from the tissues of the extremities and the vital organs of the body. Non-invasive vascular testing and diagnostic imaging are often utilized as a critical element in the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, complications related to diabetes, and in the treatment and prevention of stroke as it can determine the degree and character of any obstruction.
