Vascular Ultrasound Training Course
This 3-day Vascular Ultrasound course is designed for sonographers, echocardiographers, interventional technologists and physicians seeking intensive training on the essential aspects of vascular ultrasound. This course provides an opportunity to complement the professional’s existing skills with non-invasive vascular examination techniques. The course begins with a review of the basic ultrasound physics and instrumentation gray scale and Doppler principles, and fluid dynamics. Additional discussions include methods for optimizing the quality of diagnostic data obtained during an ultrasound examination. Specific applications are then addressed beginning with a review of the relevant anatomy and physiology followed by in-depth presentations on examination techniques, protocols and diagnostic criteria. The specific applications that will be addressed include: extra-cranial and intracranial cerebrovascular, abdominal and retroperitoneal (including large vessels as well as organs), and peripheral arterial and venous imaging and non-imaging assessments.
