Sonographer Certified At CRMC

Robert Scott, a cardiovascular sonographer at Cookeville Regional Medical Center, has earned national credentials in Cardiovascular Sonography from Cardiovascular Credentialing International. Hospital officials say Scott underwent extensive preparation to prepare for the certification. CCI is a not-for-profit corporation established for the purpose of administering credentialing examinations as an independent credentialing agency. They began credentialing cardiovascular professionals in 1968.

“Robert is to be commended for his efforts,” said Larry Marek, Chief Sonographer for the Imaging Center at Cookeville Regional. “By obtaining this credential, patients as well as physicians are assured that cardiovascular ultrasound exams are being performed by a technologist who has met established standards of training and education.”

The Imaging Center at Cookeville Regional offers a wide array of imaging services for the Upper Cumberland region including the region’s first “all digital” full-service outpatient imaging facility at its Outpatient Imaging Center located at 251 West Third Street – just one block from the hospital.
