Contact Jeannie or Bill at Quality Vascular Imaging 941-408-8855.  I am sure they would know the effective date.  Also the RDMS would work if numbers 2 and/or 3 were met...

"All non-invasive vascular diagnostic studies must be: (1) performed by a qualified physician, or (2) performed under the general supervision of a qualified physician by a technologist who has demonstrated minimum entry level competency by being credentialed in vascular technology, and/or (3) performed in a laboratory accredited in vascular technology."

Go to read the verbage on minimum entry level compentency.  Let us know what the date is...
