She has developed educational software for veterinary ultrasound through her company, Rad Imaging Skills and currently performs small animal ultrasound throughout the Denver area.

Michelle Sima MS, RDMS, RVT

Michelle graduated from Texas A&M University with her Bachelor of Science in Biology and consequently a Master’s at Colorado State University. During her Master’s, she worked on research with the veterinary radiologist using different imaging modalities, including ultrasound, to diagnose pneumonia in rabbits. This was her initial discovery of her love for ultrasound, so she pursued her career in ultrasound at the University of Colorado Hospital. She has worked at University of Colorado, outpatient imaging facilities, and as an ultrasound applications specialist. She has been a clinical instructor for three programs and is an active member of the ARDMS, SDMS, and AIUM.

EP25. Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound, what’s it all about? With Shannon York

July 1, 2022

The Sonography Lounge Hosts Lori and Trisha Talk with our guest Shannon York from Sky Vascular LLC to discuss Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound. They go into the many uses of the technology, facilities that can benefit from the integration of TCD, case studies, and more.

Transcranial Doppler is a facet of vascular ultrasound that is gaining notoriety quickly. With advancements in ultrasound technology and proper training, TCD can now allow us to evaluate the blood flow in the brain without the use of harmful radiation or dye in ways that would previously not have been possible. Today we would like to give you a brief overview of  TCD and several of its many applications that are helping to save lives through stroke prevention and treatment.
