Steven Saunders AVS

Vascular Sonographer

Having achieved a Physiology honours degree in 2002 I trained as a clinical vascular scientist at St George’s hospital, London and gained accreditation from the Society for Vascular Technology of Great and Britain and Ireland in 2006.


In 2007 I was accredited by the Australian Institute of Radiography and was certified by the Australasian Sonography Accreditation Registry (ASAR) before working in Western Australia in private practise for five years.


Since returning to the UK in 2013 I have been working across London for various NHS trusts, most often in large teaching hospitals, including St Mary’s, Charing Cross and University College London Hospital. As a clinical vascular scientist I have over 15 years experience, solely in vascular sonography. My years working in busy teaching hospitals has allowed me to gain vast experience scanning patients with a wide range of complicated and rare vascular pathologies.


More recently I have been working closer to home in Buckinghamshire in both NHS and private settings. I have been working with Miss Wilton since 2017, performing venous and arterial scans and assisting with venous procedures.
