This 2½-day vascular ultrasound course is designed to provide a thorough
review of vascular ultrasound interpretation. The course begins with a
general session which reviews the essential concepts of ultrasound imaging,
color Doppler, and spectral waveforms analysis. These lectures will examine
the basic physics behind optimizing laboratory images, understanding flow
direction and artifact recognition in order to help achieve an accurate
Other general sessions for all participants include the latest up-to-date
carotid criteria, along with presentations on vascular laboratory
credentialing, accreditation, and quality assurance. Course participants can
choose from two concurrent break-out sessions which are held during the
afternoon of the first day and morning of the second day.
Introductory topics are grouped in one session while advanced applications
are presented in the other session. The introductory lectures include
essential elements of standard laboratory testing and diagnostic criteria.
For those with a broad understanding of vascular ultrasound, the advanced
lectures offer presentations pertaining to topics including aortic
endografts and peripheral arterial stents. Participants are free to attend
lectures within both concurrent sessions. Multiple case study presentations
will be offered which illustrate the concepts being discussed and allow
interaction between participants and faculty.
Upon completion of this course, attendees should be prepared to:
*Demonstrate advanced interpretation skills for various noninvasive vascular
tests, including abdominal, arterial, venous, and cerebrovascular studies.
*Formulate a better understanding of image, Doppler, and color optimization.
*Describe various diagnostic algorithms used for noninvasive vascular
*List the essential components of ultrasound findings used for vascular
