With minimal supervision, the ultrasonographer will perform ultrasound examinations on children and adults, exercise independent judgment and ingenuity to perform a variety of sonographic examinations that require a comprehensive knowledge of cardiac anatomy, physiology and sonographic principles, and assume responsibility for designated areas or procedures as required. The professional level of this health care service will require a highly skilled and competent individual who functions as an integral member of the health care team. The ultrasonographer must be able to produce and evaluate ultrasound images and related data that are used by physicians to render a medical diagnosis and acquire and maintain specialized technical skills and medical knowledge to render quality patient care. May be required to travel to satellite locations, Encinitas, Vista and Murrieta, based on business needs.
