Meet David Adams, Duke University Medical Center

David Adams, From Duke University Medical Center, is so unpretentious and down to earth that it was hard to balance the persona you find when you Google him with the very sincere person just doing his job. He brings over 30 years of experience and education to cardiac sonography. David is one of the most recognized names of sonography is the US and is known for his expertise in teaching.

He has received numerous awards, but a recent one recognizes a cardiac sonographer who has played a luminary role in the field of echocardiography. The first Sonographer Lifetime Achievement Award was presented during ASE’s Annual Scientific Sessions, June 11-14, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

For us he was just a great guy, pushing the bus out of the deep ruts when stuck, quietly supporting the other sonographers, teasing his friends out of a slow start in the morning. The father of grown children, he is the comfort that children seek when they place their tiny hand in his as they walk toward a couple of desks pushed together to make a cot. For him, that child and echo takes the role of the most important thing on the moment as his concentration never wavered as he watched the screen for anything abnormal in a long day, For us, it was an honor and a pleasure to have him part of this team.
