Karen Croft, Sonographer

I initially qualified as a Diagnostic Radiographer and soon after completed a Diploma in Medical Ultrasound. I have over 25 years of ultrasound scanning experience in both the NHS and private sectors. In 2012, after further study, I became an Accredited Vascular Scientist . I am a member of the Society of Radiographers, the Society of Vascular Technologists and I am HCPC registered. I regularly attend up–date courses and conferences to ensure I am informed of the latest developments and I work to the highest standard. As well as my interest in Vascular ultrasound I also perform obstetric, gynae and abdominal ultrasound scans.

I have been working with Mr Sideso since 2014, performing venous and arterial scans and assisting with venous procedures.

I qualified as a Diagnostic Radiographer in 1998 and subsequently returned to university to gain a postgraduate certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging in 2000. Later I was given the opportunity to specialise in Ultrasound and qualified as a Sonographer in 2002. After five years working full time in the NHS I took up the post of Senior Lecturer at London South Bank University and in 2008 I became Course Director for Ultrasound for four years. During this time I developed and implemented a vascular module as an addition to the existing syllabus and gained my teaching qualification. Alongside my academic career I maintained my vascular skills in both the NHS and private sector.
