Q: What is an RVT and why is that important?

A: RVT stands for Registered Vascular Technologist. The sonographer helps the doctor by producing images of veins and arteries. The images are created painlessly, using soundwaves that show the structure and the movement of the veins and arteries. Not all sonographers are equal. Some medical specialties benefit from having healthcare professionals with advanced training in specific areas of the body and part of The Vein Guys® of Wisconsin commitment to Total Vein Care® is ensuring we have the best of the best when it comes to hiring the experts for our vein center.
