What is the training required to be a regular sonographer? What conditions are you trained to see? What is involved in the BNAC training? What equipment do you use and or there any equipment options? Maybe others have more questions.
I'd like to get a little primer on what you are looking for and seeing. If you want, you can use my images before and after and show us what you see as reflux, abnormal valves and stenosis. Are you up for it?

That is something!! They check the vertebral veins (I was told at AAC Brooklyn that I had beautiful verts, during the ultrasound) and if there is reflux in the verts, that indicates there may be reflux in the azygous. It's indirect but at least it's information. For Angela to be able to say that you had an azygous with bloodflow through it, she must have been seeing the verts flowing and they have to be flowing somewhere, which is the azygous...I hope I've got this right.
