 Carotid Duplex Ultrasound
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description: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. For the detection of DVT and venous reflux, duplex testing is now the gold standard other modalities are compared to. 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, extensive library of case studies will prove invaluable. Scan lab and state of the art equipment, along with low student instructor ratios allow participants plenty of time to perfect protocol, and acquire the scanning experience necessary to perform diagnostic vascular exams.
  Location:Advanced Health Education Center      Houston, TX   USA
  Director(s):Shawn Shanmuganathan , BS, RDMS, RVT
  Sponsor:Advanced Health Education Center

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.
