Overview

Duplex/Color Evaluation of Venous Insufficiency Online Course is the first step in obtaining a strong foundation to begin performing and/or interpreting venous duplex/color flow ultrasound examinations. The venous ultrasound protocols are taught in accordance with AIUM and IAC guidelines. In addition, a comprehensive review of diagnostic criteria for evaluation of DVT, venous insufficiency, and pre/post mapping for vein ablation procedures is also provided. This self-directed course is designed with six modules and includes online video lectures, case presentations, and post-activity quizzes. Seventeen venous case studies are also included. Enrollment is valid for 12 months (365 days) and begins the moment the participant is enrolled. Extend your online course access another 3 months with the addition of an onsite hands-on workshop or registration for a regularly scheduled GCUS scan workshop.
