Vascular ultrasound has progressed over the years to become much more than a screening tool. From its early beginnings of grainy black and white two dimensional images, to the addition of Doppler and color flow, it has become the modality of choice for early detection of peripheral arterial, cerebrovascular, and venous disease. Accurate diagnostic testing of the vascular system requires a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and hemodynamics as well as the various pathological conditions that can present. Multiple variables such as cardiac output, dehydration, and infection can all have an impact on the vascular system.
This two-day seminar provides an overview of physics and instrumentation, anatomy and hemodynamics, and diagnostic criteria suitable for anyone from an experienced sonographer to the beginner. For the physician wanting a more thorough understanding of the capabilities and potential of the vascular lab, along with interpretative criteria, our extensive library of case studies will prove invaluable. Our scan lab and state of the art equipment, along with our low student instructor ratios allow you plenty of time to perfect your protocol, and acquire the scanning experience necessary to perform diagnostic vascular exams.
Physicians who desire entry level training with vascular ultrasound, and sonographers or other health care professionals learning vascular ultrasound or cross training.
We understand that you may want/need to practice your new skill set more than the regularly scheduled courses allow. You can add an extra day of scanning in addition to this course by calling AHEC and speaking to a faculty member about our private tutorial option. Additionally, this tutorial is a one on one session with our expert faculty and can be designed to enhance your already developed skills.
