Hi Taj,


I have worksheets I can share with you. Just need a fax number to send them
to, although the best bet is to get a few and use them as guides as to what
you actually want to use for your lab. I have started a few labs and what I
have found useful for protocols is to model the majority of what we do to
the standards for ICAVL because I had always knew when starting up that
ICAVL accreditation is what we were gearing ourselves toward. The SVU as
others have mentioned is also a great start for standards. Their standards
are quite informative. Also you will need to become registered for
reimbursement purposes and because it's the right the thing to do, if you
are not already registered. ICAVL and ACR both will require this if you seek
to accredit the lab. Good luck and best wishes.

Hi everybody!

I am currently working in the imaging department, but will be moving to work
with the vascular surgeons in the next couple of months. We will be
establishing the vascular lab. Everyone at our site including the surgeons
is new to this. I would appreciate any input as to what is needed as far as
books, articles, manuals, or anything to follow when we start the lab. The
US machine we got is the GE Logiq. I do not know about the Vascular machine-
I mean which one they will be getting. Also what kind of table you would
suggest?  Any worksheets, templates for routine exams, protocols, policies,
maintaining standards......Oh! My mind is in a jumble mumble right now with
so many questions that keep popping every minute.

Please help.

Thank you!
