The Department of Urology is looking for an Abdominal ARDMS-registered sonographer, preferably with Pediatric and Vascular board certification or willing to obtain these. The position is full-time, weekdays only, 8:00 to 4:30, with no call. There are currently two experienced sonographers on the team, and you would be bringing us to our recently designated full complement of three. Our patients are seen in two separate buildings here in Charlottesville: The Battle Buildingfor pediatric urology and, starting in October, Fontaine Parkfor adult urology.
The adult clinical work involves general urologic disorders, such as kidney stones, genitourinary cancer and voiding dysfunction. Typical days might also involve scrotal and penile Doppler studies and transrectal prostate biopsy. There are very occasional operating room procedures requiring ultrasound assistance.
Our pediatric patients include those with both severe and mild congenital problems related to the genitourinary tract and older children with, for example, voiding dysfunction, stones or scrotal pathology.
We work under the supervision of our urology providers and initially, certainly if you are not already experienced in urologic sonography, you will work closely with our current sonographers to bring you up to speed in this field.
