Event Description

Vascular ultrasound has progressed over the years to become much more than a screening tool. From its early beginnings of grainy black and white two dimensional images, to the addition of Doppler and color flow, it has become the modality of choice for early detection of peripheral arterial, cerebrovascular, and venous disease. For the detection of DVT and venous reflux, duplex testing is now the gold standard other modalities are compared to. Accurate diagnostic testing of the vascular system requires a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and hemodynamics as well as the various pathological conditions that can present. Multiple variables such as cardiac output, dehydration, and infection can all have an impact on the vascular system.

This two-day seminar provides an overview of physics and instrumentation, anatomy and hemodynamics, and diagnostic criteria suitable for anyone from an experienced sonographer to the beginner. For the physician wanting a more thorough understanding of the capabilities and potential of the vascular lab, along with interpretative criteria, our extensive library of case studies will prove invaluable. Our scan lab and state of the art equipment, along with our low student instructor ratios allow you plenty of time to perfect your protocol, and acquire the scanning experience necessary to perform diagnostic vascular exams.

*This course can be taken individually as a two (2) day course OR part of the Vascular Ultrasound seven (7) day course.

At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

  • Correctly identify vessel anatomy and orientation in a vascular ultrasound examination.
  • Identify the variations in instrumentation and Doppler principles and the effects in scanning parameters.
  • Describe the flow characteristics and the manifestations of disease processes.
  • Discuss QA of the procedure and equipment.
  • Analyze the results of a vascular exam for pathological conditions and in certain cases, quantify the diseases.
  • Identify additional resource information on vascular ultrasound.

Course Topics

  • Day one of this two day seminar starts with an overview of the physical principles of ultrasound including Doppler and color flow, followed by a comprehensive review of the ultrasound platform controls enabling you to optimize your system for even the most difficult patient. After lunch you will be introduced to our scan lab with state of the art equipment platforms and low student instructor ratios where you will learn the specific controls for each of the platforms on the floor, basic scanning techniques, and patient positioning.
  • Day two starts carotid duplex testing. This includes anatomy, hemodynamics, diagnostic criteria, case studies, pearls and pitfalls, as well as standardized reporting. After lunch you will again be in the scan lab working on protocols, technique, and documentation of your studies.

*This course can be taken as a two day course, or as days 1 – 2 of the seven day Vascular Ultrasound course.
