Overview

Ultrasound Evaluation of Non-Atherosclerotic Carotid Abnormalities Webinar will focus on a case-based approach using duplex ultrasound to evaluate the non-atherosclerotic carotid abnormalities. The cases will emphasize differentiating and documenting ultrasound findings associated with various abnormalities associated with intraluminal obstruction, structural wall integrity defects, extraluminal pathology and compression syndromes.

Code: NACA2-241W
ID: 7265

Schedule

Event Day(s): April 10 - 12, 2024
Time(day 1): 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM (EST)

Topics

  • Intraluminal Obstruction: thromboembolism, dissection, fibromuscular dysplasia, vasculitis/arteritis, radiation fibrosis
  • Structural (wall) integrity defects: Aneurysmal disease; penetrating ulcers; arterio-venous fistulas; tortuosity/coiling
  • Extraluminal Factors/Other: carotid body tumor, jugular vein thrombosis, extrinsic compression syndromes, neck masses

Objectives

  • Identity ultrasound characteristics of thromboembolism, dissection, fibromuscular dysplasia, vasculitis, and radiation fibrosis.
  • State the diagnostic criteria associated with aneurysm, penetrating ulcers, and arterio-venous fistulas.
  • Recognize ultrasound findings associated with carotid body tumor, jugular vein thrombosis, and extrinsic compression syndromes .
  • Identify incidental neck masses commonly seen when performing a carotid duplex/color flow imaging examination.
  • Improve knowledge and competence to perform and/or interpret carotid duplex/color flow imaging examinations.
