Overview

Introduction to Carotid Duplex/Color Flow Imaging Virtual Conference is taught by leading vascular ultrasound experts and covers cerebrovascular anatomy/physiology, Doppler principles, scan techniques, interpretation criteria, and interactive interpretation sessions designed to provide a strong foundation to perform and/or interpret carotid duplex ultrasound examinations.

The structure of the course is a combination of live lectures and interactive case studies presented by vascular ultrasound experts to enable the learner to immediately begin integrating the skills learned into clinical practice. The carotid duplex / color flow imaging training course is specifically designed for physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals who are looking for only the best vascular training and CME.

Combine the Carotid Duplex/Color Flow Imaging program with the 2-day Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Imaging for the most comprehensive vascular ultrasound training. The combined course offers the ability to expand your knowledge and competence to increase patient services offered. In addition, a tuition discount is applied to the combined programs.

Objectives

  • Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret Carotid Duplex/Color Flow Imaging ultrasound examinations.
  • Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the cerebrovascular system into the Carotid Duplex examination.
  • Cite Doppler/color physics principles and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls and/or (physicians) utilize this information for identifying technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
  • Perform routine scan protocols and Doppler calculations in a complete carotid duplex/color examination.
  • Differentiate normal/abnormal spectral Doppler/color characteristics.
  • List methods for obtaining quantitative information and state the diagnostic relevance of each measurement.
  • Characterize plaque morphology and other pathology associated with cerebral vascular disease.
  • Perform Intima-Media Thickness measurements and state the clinical significance as a screening method for cardiovascular disease.
  • Integrate the information to include and prepare a structured report for a carotid ultrasound examination.
  • Apply diagnostic criteria for accurate interpretation of carotid duplex/color flow examinations
