Course Itinerary

Course Objectives:

At the completion of the program the participant should be able to:

1. Identify the anatomy/physiology of the cerebrovascular system.
2. Discuss Doppler/color physics and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls or (physicians) utilize this information for identifying technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
3. Perform routine scan protocols, and Doppler calculations in a complete carotid duplex/color examination.
4. Identify normal/abnormal spectral Doppler/ color characteristics; explain methods for obtaining quantitative information and state the diagnostic relevance of each measurement.
5. Desscribe and characterize plaque and other pathology associated with cerebrovascular disease.
6. Discuss Intima-Media Thickness measurements and evaluation and their clinical significance as a screening method for cardiovascular disease.
7. Apply the information discussed in a clinical setting, under supervised conditions until an accepted level of proficiency has been achieved.
8. Increase knowledge and confidence to perform and/or interpret examinations.

Course Topics:

* Doppler fundamentals
* Anatomy/physiology and disease progression
* Normal spectral analysis
* Carotid scan protocol
* Color optimization
* Carotid stenosis assessment
* Interactive interpretation case studies
* Imaging “Do’s & Don’ts”
* Technical worksheet/document waverforms and measurements
* Structure report
* Intima-Media Thickness: Measurement and Evaluation
* Hands-on sessions

Who Can Attend?

Sonographers and other medical professionals learning how to perform carotid duplex/color examinations (proof of allied health experience required). Physicians at an entry level of interpreting examinations. Physician participants may include (but are not limited to) those involved with internal medicine, cardiology, radiology, and general/vascular surgery.
