6 About the SPI Examination & SPI Requirement Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) Examination Requirement: The Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) Examination Requirement allows students to apply for and take the SPI examination prior to graduation. The SPI Examination Requirement can be found in the Prerequisite Chart section of this guide. The SPI Examination Requirement cannot be used when applying for a specialty examination (eg. AB, BR, OB/GYN, NE, FE, AE, PE, VT). Applicants previously approved for the SPI examination under the SPI Examination Requirement must choose a prerequisite in order to apply for a specialty New Semi-Interactive Console Questions on the Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) Examination In the middle to late part of 2012, the Sonography Principles & Instrumentation (SPI) examination will introduce select items (questions) featuring a new patent-pending semi-interactive ultrasound machine console. The new items will display a partially completed ultrasound image and a question that indicates a problem with the image. Examinees will use a mouse to select the control on the simulated console that will correct the problem. These new types of questions will measure the examinees knowledge, skills and abilities in a format that closely relates to clinical practice.

7 Choosing a Prerequisite To earn an ARDMS credential, applicants must choose and meet the requirements of a prerequisite.

11 Notes About the SPI Examination Requirement The SPI Examination Requirement applies to the SPI examination only. SPI Applicants who can fully meet an existing ARDMS prerequisite (1 through 7) are strongly encouraged to apply under that prerequisite, as future application processing will be faster and easier. Applicants who have applied for and been approved to take a former Principles and Instrumentation examination (UPI, CPI, VPI) or any ARDMS specialty examination(s) (e.g. AB, BR, OB/GYN, NE, FE, AE, PE, VT) should not apply under the SPI Examination Requirement but rather as a re-applicant (visit ARDMS.org/reapplicant for details). A clinical verification (CV) form is not required when applying under the SPI Examination Requirement. To apply for an ARDMS specialty examination (e.g. AB, BR, OB/GYN, NE, FE, AE, PE, VT), an existing ARDMS prerequisite (1 through 7) must be met. Notes About the Prerequisites 1 A two-year allied health education program that is patient-care related is defined as (1) 24 full-time consecutive calendar months or (2) 60 semester credits or (3) 84 quarter credits (4) and requiring a clinical internship/externship to complete the program. Credit hours are based on U.S. equivalency in a post secondary institution. The program or school must be authorized by an accrediting agency to award semester or quarter credits and the type of credits granted must be reflected on the transcript. Transcripts reflecting clock hours must be converted to credit hours. If submitting a foreign degree, an original course by course foreign transcript evaluation must accompany the application summary and indicate the aforementioned requirements. 2 Full-time is defined as 35 hours per week, at least 48 weeks per year. If working part time, the requirements are prorated. Twenty hours per week would take approximately two years. The full-time definition applies to both paid clinical ultrasound/vascular experience and experience earned through completion of a formal ultrasound/vascular program. 3 Clinical ultrasound/vascular experience may be obtained one of two ways: (1) being employed as an ultrasound/vascular sonographer in a clinical setting for a minimum of 12 months and a minimum of 1680 hours, or (2) successfully completing a formal, full-time ultrasound/vascular program that is a minimum of 12 months in length, a minimum of 1680 total program hours, including appropriate clinical and didactic hours, and requires a clinical internship/externship to complete the program. If the total length of the program exceeds 12 months, the applicant must successfully complete the program in its entirety prior to using the program as documentation of the required clinical ultrasound/vascular experience. It is recommended that an applicant be directly involved in a minimum of 800 diagnostic cases during his/her clinical experience in each specialty area for which he/she is applying. Clinical diagnostic settings include hospitals, clinics and private practices. ARDMS does not accept volunteer, instructorship, unpaid, barter or veterinarian experience. The time frames in which the education and clinical requirements are met cannot overlap. Clinical experience earned to document the education requirement cannot also be used to support the clinical requirement. 4 The mandatory Prerequisite 2 Application letter (found on ARDMS.org /sampleletters) is valid for one year from the date of graduation. If the application and appropriate supporting documentation are not received after one year of successful completion of the program, the applicant will need new documentation verifying successful program completion, and a current, completed, original signed CV form for each applied-for specialty area will be required. An original letter per student is required. First-time applicants applying under Prerequisite 2 must apply for either the Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) examination or a specialty area that is included within the programmatically accredited curriculum. 5 The mandatory Student Prerequisite 3B Application Letter (found on ARDMS.org/sampleletters), is valid through the expected graduation date. If the student chooses to apply after graduation, then the Graduate Prerequisite 3B Application letter (found on ARDMS.org /sampleletters) and a current, completed, original CV form for each applied-for specialty area will be required. An original letter per student is required. General Prerequisites Continued & Important Notes Note: If the Bachelor s Degree sonography/ vascular technology program is also programmatically accredited through one of the following: Council for Higher Accreditation (CHEA), United States Department of (USDOE), or Canadian Medical Association (CMA), and the students have graduated, then the prerequisite 3B students should apply under prerequisite 2.
