Robert Daigle is a nationally recognized educator, author, and clinician in vascular technology. He has been in noninvasive vascular diagnosis for over 40 years.
He has pioneered many of the diagnostic protocols widely in use today. He has combined his extensive clinical experience with a dedication to teaching a "no-nonsense" approach to noninvasive vascular diagnosis.
Rob has lectured internationally and extensively in the USA. He is a long-standing member and a Fellow of the Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) and the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS).
