What's Your Superpower?

I feel like it's been forever since I have gotten the chance to sit down and blog. It's been over a month. School has kept me quite busy. I have been sleeping and breathing ultrasound. But that's okay with me. I am really loving all that I am learning.  Clinicals started three weeks ago. I am doing a rotation at a bigger hospital in the area. They are affiliated with a local college which makes them a teaching hospital and an ideal setting to learn in. I have seen so much already! It really is amazing to finally take everything I have only ever seen/read about in a textbook and apply it to real life. Being out in the real world and working with patients has definitely made me more passionate about this career choice. I am so glad I choose vascular sonography, especially over cardiac or general/ob. I think this will be a challenging career for me. It will never be boring. The cool thing is that you never quite know what you will see what you put the transducer down on a patient's skin. We may all have the same vessels, but the way they lie in the body is always slightly different. I am like a detective searching for missing pieces of a puzzle. I can see with sound! What's your superpower? ;)
Here is an ultrasound image, pulled from Google, of a carotid artery bifurcation. Cool!
