Overview

Introduction to Carotid & Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Imaging 2022 is organized by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (GCUS) Inc and will be held from Jul 18 - 21, 2022 at Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, St. Petersburg, Florida, United States of America.

Target Audience:
Sonographers, physicians, physician assistants and other medical professionals learn how to perform and/or interpret carotid and peripheral vascular duplex/color examinations. Participants may include (but are not limited to) those involved with internal medicine, cardiology, radiology, neurology, general/vascular surgery, and primary care.

Description:
introduction to Carotid & Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Imaging Live Training Course is taught by leading vascular ultrasound experts, with a 3:1 participant to faculty hands-on scan ratio and is specifically designed for physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals who need Carotid & Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Imaging training. GCUS offers four-day Carotid & Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Imaging ultrasound courses at our facility in St. Petersburg, FL that includes 130+ interactive case presentations. In this (4) four-day-long vascular program, participants will learn ultrasound techniques for the entire vascular system.

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 to the Carotid Duplex examination.
• Cite Doppler/color physics principles and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls 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.
• Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret upper and lower Peripheral Vascular ultrasound examinations.
• Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the upper and lower extremity venous and arterial systems into the venous and arterial duplex and physiologic testing examinations.
• Cite Doppler/color physics and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls and/or (physicians) utilize this information for recognizing technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
• Perform routine scan protocols, and document Doppler waveforms for lower extremity arterial and venous evaluations of the upper and lower extremity.
• Differentiate normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and color characteristics for identifying arterial and venous disease.
• State the indications and applications of indirect testing methods for lower arterial disease.
• Demonstrate vein mapping techniques to identify suitability as a potential arterial bypass graft.
• Perform routine scan protocols and document Doppler waveforms for venous evaluation of the lower extremities, including pre and post vein ablation evaluation.
• State the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency.
• Perform evaluation for venous insufficiency and patency of perforators for vein therapy treatment.
