The Memorial Hospital at Easton earned three-year accreditation from the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. This clinical distinction recognizes the hospital for its commitment to providing a high level of patient care and quality testing for the diagnosis of vascular disease.
Cardiovascular disease in its many forms is the leading cause of death in the US. Early detection of these life-threatening conditions is possible through the use of non-invasive vascular testing.
Registered vascular sonographers staff the Memorial Hospital Vascular Laboratory. They use state of the art imaging technology to measure blood as it flows through the veins and arteries throughout the body. The results of these tests help physicians diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions, such as deep vein thrombosis, peripheral vascular disease, vascular complications of diabetes, and blockages in the carotid artery, which feeds blood to the brain.
Dudley Soulsman, RVT, Clinical Vascular Specialist for Memorial Hospital, says, “Accreditation is a yearlong process that looks at our facility and equipment, the credentials and training of our staff, and the testing results we produce. Earning accreditation means that we are a well-established lab and that the work we do meets the highest clinical standards of the vascular testing profession.”
