Andrew,
It is not age but experience and knowing your protocols ,,, it is also your responsibility as a technical director to maintain department ongoing peer QA and training.. there is no such thing as a quick look for any study,,,nor laboring over sometime that does not not change the outcome,,, 
Perhaps go over images of too little or too many images.. often a technologist will want several waveforms and 4-5 is adequate,,

30 mins unilateral,
60 mins visceral including ABI if necessary 
60 mins bilateral arterial or any. venous

Lead ,  evaluate and educate ,, for a good work enviorment ,,

Hi guys,



Due to our large lab, we have a mix of both old and new techs who all do testing at different speeds (42 techs ranging from early 20s to 60’s in age).  Our issue is that the scan and reporting times are allotted for the slower techs which

is creating a ton of down time and low productivity for the quicker techs.  That being said we also know that there are techs out there that if allotted an hour for a test, they will take the full hour regardless so we need to make changes to our scheduled

times but do not want require techs to function at an unrealistic pace.  For the record we have mostly all newer GE machines (Logiq E9 or S8).



 



What are the timeslots everyone is using for their lab for the following studies (Including scan and Reporting times)?  Please note if you have heavy reporting or written worksheet reporting.



 



1-     

CAROTID B/L



 



2-     

B/L LOWER LIMB ARTERIAL DUPLEX with ABI



 



3-     

U/L LOWER LIMB ARTERIAL DUPLEX with ABI



 



4-     

AORTO ILIAC DUPLEX – no ABI and no evar/fevar surgery



 



5-     

AORTOILIAC DUPLEX with ABI



 



6-     

RENAL ARTERY DUPLEX B/L



 



7-     

LOWER EXTREMITY VEIN MAPPING – No marking for CABG



 



8-     

LOWER EXTREMITY VEIN MAPPING – With marking for BPG



 



9-     

UPPER LIMB DIALYSIS VEIN/ARTERY MAPPING B/L



 



Thank you everyone in advance,
