Neurovascular Ultrasound – Transcranial Doppler Course
05/01/2013 @ 8:00 am - 05/03/2013 @ 5:00 pm
The Basic Neurovascular Ultrasound courses present the anatomy, pathophysiology and hemodynamics regarding extracranial and intracranial cerebral circulation. Carotid duplex sonography, color-flow imaging, carotid intima-media thickness measurement, transcranial Doppler (TCD), embolus detection and new developments in ultrasonographic methods are presented during lectures and hands-on scanning lab sessions. The emphasis is on clinical applications, case examples and principles of interpretation. The courses are designed as a one-week curriculum, and participants are encouraged to attend for the entire week. However, the first three days focus on principles, physics and extracranial carotid sonography, while the last two days focus on TCD. Either part may be attended separately.
