This package includes DVD's and literature covering a range of vascular ultrasound applications. All DVD Course Packs are discounted 10% off the total price.
This enduring material is designed to provide a step by step protocol for performing a carotid Duplex/color flow imaging examination based on AIUM, ACR, and IAC ultrasound practice guidelines. The protocol is provided in a written outline format with examples of ultrasound images, spectral Doppler waveforms and diagnostic criteria for evaluation of carotid artery disease. A live demonstration is also included to reinforce the examination techniques.
This enduring material will focus on a case based approach using duplex ultrasound to evaluate the extracranial cerebrovascular system. The cases will emphasize differentiating and documenting near total versus total occlusions of both the ICA and the CCA. Additional cases will be presented on evaluating severe stenoses, some commonly made errors in evaluation (and how to correct them), abnormal vertebral artery hemodynamics, cardiac effects on cerebrovascular flow patterns, and special considerations for evaluating carotid stents.
Normal Carotid Duplex/Color Examination DVD is designed to provide an overview of carotid duplex/color flow imaging fundamentals to include examination indications, cerebrovascular anatomy, scan techniques, normal image, spectral & Color Doppler characteristics. Examination protocols are outlined in accordance with IAC , AIUM, SRU, and ACR guidelines.
Doppler and Color Fundamentals: Vascular Ultrasound training video is designed to provide a review of Doppler and color ultrasound fundamentals for performing carotid and peripheral vascular applications.
Ultrasound Evaluation of Intima-Media Thickness Training Video is designed to discuss the importance of performing IMT examinations, how to perform IMT measurements. How to apply the information obtained for effective management of patients who are at risk for cardiovascular disease is also covered.
Carotid Stenosis Assessment DVD is designed to provide an overview of carotid duplex/color flow imaging techniques and criteria to diagnose cerebrovascular disease. The lecture includes how to analyze the spectral Doppler waveform characteristics, integration of routine measurements, and carotid case presentations. The participant will be able to apply current diagnostic criteria to evaluate carotid stenosis and other associated abnormalities after viewing this video.
