JDMS: Sonographic Evaluation of the Portal and Hepatic Systems is organized by Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS). Start Date: 07/01/2008 Expiration Date: 10/31/2021 Accreditation: This Course has been approved for a maximum of 1.5 Credits Description: Color and spectral Doppler are used to evaluate flow characteristics in the portal and hepatic vessels. On occasion, suprahepatic pathologies are reflected in the flow characteristics of the hepatic veins and transmitted to the portal venous system across the hepatic sinusoids. Few definitive duplex findings are pathognomic for portal hypertension. Evaluation of the portal venous system is analogous to a puzzle. A picture of the processes can only be attained after many of the pieces are assembled. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

JDMS: Uterine Artery Doppler and Its Value in Predicting Preeclampsia is organized by Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS). Start Date: 03/13/2009 Expiration Date: 04/30/2021 Accreditation: This Course has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Credits Description: Prematurity is the leading cause of fetal morbidity and mortality. One of the most common reasons for women to have preterm delivery is due to a condition called preeclampsia. Early detection of preeclampsia is key to providing the best obstetric care and lessening the chance of maternal or fetal demise. The problem has been finding accurate ways to detect or predict women who will develop preeclampsia so that they can be closely monitored before the actual symptoms occur. Uterine artery Doppler has been shown to predict pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia. Investigators have shown that many women who develop preeclampsia have abnormalDoppler waveforms. Alone, uterine artery doppler shows promise but is more accurate when combined with maternal factors such as maternal health history and first-trimester pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A values. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Abdominal Vascular Studies Course is organized by Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS). Start Date: 08/05/2010 Expiration Date: 08/05/2021 Accreditation: This Course has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Credits Description: Abdominal vascular sonography has gained an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and management of patients with hepato-portal, mesenteric and renal disorders. While technically challenging, these studies offer the opportunity to apply sonographic skills and knowledge of the physical principles of ultrasound, hemodynamics, and the pathophysiology of abdominal vascular disease. This presentation will address the most common pathologies, technical protocols for sonographic evaluation, and the capabilities and limitations encountered during examination of the hepato-portal, mesenteric and renal vascular systems. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
JDMS: The Potential Value of Adding Colonic Sonography to Routine Abdominal Protocol in Patients With Active Pain
May 16, 2011 - Jun 30, 2023 | Credits : 1
JDMS: The Potential Value of Adding Colonic Sonography to Routine Abdominal Protocol in Patients With Active Pain is organized by Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS). Start Date: 05/16/2011 Expiration Date: 06/30/2023 Accreditation: This Course has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Credits Description: Abdominal sonography examinations include evaluation of solid intra-abdominal organs but do not routinely includeassessment of the colon. The focus of this study was to determine the utility of colonic sonography in addition toabdominal imaging in the prospective evaluation of patients with nonspecific acute or subacute abdominal symptoms.Patients referred for abdominal sonography for investigation of abdominal pain were evaluated by performing routine abdominal sonography followed by a detailed colonic sonographic examination. Final diagnosis was established by a clinical history questionnaire. Twelve colon (46%) or colon-related pathologies were identified, occurring in the cohort of 26 patients with a mean age of 23 years (range, 18–77 years). Sonographic findings included normal colon (n = 13),inflammatory bowel diseases (n = 6), diverticular disease (n = 5), and colon-related ancillary findings (n = 1). Thededicated colon sonographic examination yielded a sensitivity of 91.6%, specificity of 92.8%, positive predictive valueof 91.6%, and negative predictive value of 92.8% (P < .17). Integrating the dedicated colon sonographic examination inaddition to the routine abdominal sonography identified significant bowel disease and provided additional information regarding causes of patient symptoms. As this is a pilot study, additional prospective studies in larger populations are required to confirm the results and conclusions. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

JDMS: A Retrospective Analysis of Abdominal Competency Scores to Improve Clinical Education in a Sonography Program
Jul 28, 2014 - Aug 31, 2021 | Credits : 1
JDMS: A Retrospective Analysis of Abdominal Competency Scores to Improve Clinical Education in a Sonography Program is organized by Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS). Start Date: 07/28/2014 Expiration Date: 08/31/2021 Accreditation: This Course has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Credits Description: Classroom examinations and a passing score on a sonography certification examination are means to assess a student’s retention of material presented during didactic education and further studying. Typically, however, clinical competencies are graded based on actual observation of scanning skills and the ability to identify specific organs and associated abnormalities. We are reporting an analysis of the data collected from students’ completed abdominal competency evaluations over the past four years to determine what organ was the easiest to learn to scan, what organ was the most difficult to learn to scan, and in what organ(s) was pathology most often recognized or missed. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
