Jason, Just an idea. Could it be because echo is not always still images and that a recording time or measurements necessary by the technologist require 45 mins?
 
Vascular carotids require so many measurements no one could do it any faster unless measured post exam.

I have a question to those out there that have both accreditation.

I have heard (sorry lazy and did not research the topic) that ICAEL stipulates that an echo should take 45 minutes, the whole 45 minutes, and that is part of the accreditation. If this is true why does not ICAVL require such a time frame?

One other topic on accredidation, are more labs (ICAVL) foregoing accreditation by staffing only registered technologist's to suffice for reimbursement issues.

Both of these issues are hot right now in my area.
