Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound Course
04/15/2013 @ 8:00 am - 04/18/2013 @ 5:00 pm
The Peripheral Vascular courses describe how ultrasound is applied to the detection and evaluation of disorders affecting extremity and abdominal blood vessels. Anatomy and physiology of the circulation is covered, along with the signs and symptoms of peripheral vascular disease. An overview of ultrasound and Doppler physics is included. Scanning labs address technical skills for the novice and those with experience with ultrasound imaging, and concentrate upon duplex and color flow Doppler modalities. (Carotid artery disease is addressed in the Neurovascular courses.) With an emphasis on the interpretation of test results, this course has been designed as one for physicians, general/cardiac sonographers and vascular technologists.
