• Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound

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.

Private Ultrasound Tutorials

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.

AHEC Cancellation and Refund Policy for Skills Courses

AHEC defines a skills course as a limited enrollment course where a received registration with payment reserves your place in a course (i.e. all Ultrasound courses, Mammography Initial Training and other theory courses). For cancellations received at least two weeks prior to the course date, a refund less a 30% processing fee will be given. Within two weeks of the course, no refund is given, but a tuition credit – less a 30% processing fee – may be applied to a future course. No refunds or tuition credit is given for non-attendance. Facilities may substitute employees by notification to AHEC at least one week in advance.

At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

  • Correctly identify vessel anatomy and orientation in a vascular ultrasound examination.
  • Identify the variations in instrumentation and Doppler principles and the effects in scanning parameters.
  • Describe the flow characteristics and the manifestations of disease processes.
  • Discuss QA of the procedure and equipment.
  • Analyze the results of a vascular exam for pathological conditions and in certain cases, quantify the diseases.
  • Identify additional resource information on vascular ultrasound.

Course Topics

  • Overview of the physical principles of ultrasound including Doppler and color flow
  • Comprehensive review of the ultrasound platform controls enabling you to optimize your system for even the most difficult patient
  • Arterial duplex testing
  • Anatomy, hemodynamics, and diagnostic criteria
  • Venous diagnostics including techniques for the detection of DVT and Venous reflux
  • Case studies, pearls and pitfalls, and standardized reporting
  • Hands-on scan lab
