As an Ultrasound Technician, you explain procedures and give directions to patients every day. Give an example to the interviewer that shows you can talk with patients and explain procedures in a way that makes sense to them.
"I worked with an elderly lady who needed an ultrasound on her breast. She was nervous because of a potential diagnosis that could mean cancer, which is obviously a big deal! I explained the process clearly, assisting her with getting into position, and asked if she had any questions. I told her what we were looking for and how long it would take for us to get back to her on a diagnosis."
"As an Ultrasound Technician, I am expected to be an expert at my craft. When working with patients, it is important that they understand the procedure that is happening and their role in assisting in the process. In my work experience, I worked with a young boy that was having an abdominal ultrasound. As he was very antsy on the exam table, I explained to him that he could see what I was doing on the monitor and as he watched, I told him what we were looking at and this helped keep him still for the required images."
"I have found throughout my career that explaining what I'm doing with patients and giving clear directions to them helps the patient relax while in my care. Recently, I had a gentleman come in for a vascular exam using doppler and he was very uneasy after seeing his physician. The fear was that the man may have had a blockage to his heart and the test was ordered to confirm. By speaking to him in a calm voice and explaining how he would need to be positioned during the exam, he was much more relaxed. He could also see the monitor so I walked him through the different things that I was looking at on the screen."
