Event Description

Introduction to Carotid Duplex/Color Flow Imaging Training Course is taught by leading vascular ultrasound experts, with a 3:1 faculty to participant hands-on scan ratio and is specifically designed for physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals who need carotid ultrasound training. GCUS offers three day carotid ultrasound courses at our facility in St. Petersburg, FL that includes 70+ interactive case presentations. The course is held at multiple dates throughout the year, making it the perfect course for both local participants and participants traveling to Florida. GCUS offers carotid ultrasound training as a stand alone three-day course, or as part of a week long vascular ultrasound training and CME program. In the week long vascular program, participants will learn ultrasound techniques for the entire vascular system.


  • Doppler & Color Fundamentals

  • Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret Carotid Duplex/Color Flow Imaging ultrasound examinations.
  • Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the cerebrovascular system into the Carotid Duplex examination.
  • Cite Doppler/color physics principles and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls and/or (physicians) utilize this information for identifying technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
  • Perform routine scan protocols and Doppler calculations in a complete carotid duplex/color examination.
  • Differentiate normal/abnormal spectral Doppler/color characteristics.
  • List methods for obtaining quantitative information and state the diagnostic relevance of each measurement.
  • Characterize plaque morphology and other pathology associated with cerebral vascular disease.
  • Perform Intima-Media Thickness measurements and state the clinical significance as a screening method for cardiovascular disease.
  • Integrate the information to include and prepare a structured report for a carotid ultrasound examination.
  • Apply diagnostic criteria for accurate interpretation of carotid duplex/color flow examinations
