Many people ask about the letters behind the name. Sr. of course is because Mike has a son with the same name. Mike made a web page dedicated to his oldest child and his child's disease Retinoblastoma.

Then there is RDMS (AB,OB) which stands for Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (Abdomen, Obstetrics). These are the letters that say Mike has passed his examining tests and is qualified to perform ultrasounds on the Abdomen and babies as well as non-pregnant female organs.

The last set of initials are RVT which stands for Registered Vascular Technologist. This distinction means that Mike has taken and passed the test that says he is competent to perform Vascular ultrasound exams which include the arteries in the neck (Carotid) as well as Arteries and Veins in the arms and legs.

Another common question people ask is "what are you called?" We are Ultrasound Technologists or "Techs" for short. You can also say we are Ultrasonographers or Sonographers for short. You could even say Echo Tech even though this is an older term, people still use it especially for Cardiac Sonographers.
