RYAN

Specialised Venous Sonographer

Ryan has been working with Dr Luke Matar since 2003 within Radiology practices in WA. Ryan started sonography training in 2006 and has worked within a wide variety of ultrasound including general, musculo-skeletal, fertility, and rural ultrasound. While having a keen interest in most areas of sonography and still providing services within rural WA, Ryan focuses mainly upon vascular ultrasound, especially in the area of the diagnosis of the cause of varicose veins.

He joined Luke at the inception of The Vein Clinic in 2014 after a few years in a commercial role and has been getting busier ever since. Ryan has a passion for detail and together with Luke prides himself on best practices based upon a thorough assessment resulting in a personalised treatment plan.

“I am passionate about using Gold Standard assessment recommendations within ultrasound to diagnose the cause of varicose veins so that patients can enjoy long-lasting treatment results with minimal downtime. I keep abreast of the latest techniques, attending and giving lectures, and believe that Dr Matar is a leader in his field.”

She currently works at The Vein Clinic to help assess initial patients and help prepare them for vein treatment by answering any questions they have, as well as facilitating all necessary specialist referrals and diagnostic imaging requests, saving our patients the time and confusion of organising this paperwork autonomously.
