“The accuracy of examinations depends on the knowledge, skill, and
experience of the technologist and interpreter. Consequently, the providers
of NIVT studies must be capable of demonstrating and maintaining documented
training and experience.
Effective 06/01/02, all noninvasive vascular diagnostic studies must be
(1) performed by, or under the direct supervision of, persons that have
demonstrated minimum entry level competency by being credentialed in
vascular technology, or
(2) performed in laboratories accredited in vascular technology.
Examples of appropriate personnel certification include the following
Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT)
Registered Vascular Specialist (RCS)
Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS)
Examples of appropriate laboratory accreditation includes:
Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories
American College of Radiology (ACR)
The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).”
