Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation

Who Should Attend

This advanced course is designed for physicians and sonographers who have been practicing noninvasive vascular diagnosis. The course will assume that participants have an understanding of anatomy of the vascular system, principles of Doppler ultrasound and the basic principles of Doppler diagnosis.

The course will begin with hemodynamics, pathophysiology, and state-of-the-art Doppler instrumentation.

The majority of the course will focus on interpretation of vascular studies and case analysis of cerebrovascular, peripheral arterial, peripheral venous and abdominal Doppler studies. The course will also include some of the more unusual findings in vascular disease. Informal question and answer sessions will be incorporated throughout the program to facilitate a high level interactivity between participants and faculty. Course participants are invited to bring their interesting or challenging cases.

For those with minimal or no prior experience with vascular technology, we recommend the Vascular Ultrasound-Core Course.
