Anita Brannon Staff Sonographer

I have been working in the field of diagnostic ultrasound as RDMS sonographer since 1992. I have an extensive back ground in women’s health as OB GYN ultrasound in the clinical and educational setting. I continue to be part of a team teaching physicians how to use diagnostic ultrasound in the clinical setting in Nephrology at Emory University Medical School. I have been a staff sonographer with Mt. Vernon Clinical Trials in Atlanta now for almost 3 years. It is extremely rewarding to be part of and assist in clinical trials, research. I look forward to all of the ways in which ultrasound can be a great tool in aiding research.
