After graduating from the Medical School Program in 1997, Daniela became fascinated with the field of Diagnostic Imaging and accepted an invitation from one of the leading USA ultrasound institutes to enrol for a Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound Diploma, which she mastered in 2001. Seeking to expand her knowledge and skills, Daniela completed extensive formal ultrasound training and internships in the most renowned USA university hospitals and trauma centres in NY and NJ. Being exposed to diverse pathologies and a multitude of clinical scenarios, Daniela has built a solid core of medical knowledge and experience in her field of interest.

. She worked closely with vascular surgeons and university medical professors, assisting them with ultrasound in the operating theatre on a broad range of interventional procedures.
