Laurie Bentson, MHA, RVT, RDMS is a sonographer registered in vascular and abdominal ultrasound. She attended the Oregon Institute of Technology and developed her vascular scanning skills while serving patients for 20 years at Banner University Medical Center-Phoenix campus. During her tenure, she managed the ultrasound team performing high-risk OB; supporting organ transplant services, vascular and cardiac surgeons, NICU, a stroke center, and a robust interventional radiology team to include ultrasound guidance procedures. Laurie furthered her education by obtaining her Master’s degree in Healthcare Administration and was promoted to Senior Manager, serving two additional major medical centers within Banner Health.

Throughout her career, Laurie has had the opportunity to develop students and seasoned technologists by sharing her experiences and enthusiasm for diagnostic imaging and  most important, patient care. She continued working as an adjunct lab instructor, serving on multiple steering committees and the advisory board for the ultrasound program at Gateway Community College for much of her career. Laurie contributed to the development of structured reporting of vascular ultrasound findings to improve the quality of the documentation and standardize ultrasound imaging.  She has also successfully managed accreditation and reaccreditation processes for all imaging departments to include Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA), American College of Radiology (ACR), and Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

Most recently, Laurie made the career choice to immerse herself in ultrasound once again through WCUI, where she serves as Clinical Lab Director – restructuring lab environments to mirror clinical spaces and maximize learning opportunities.
