Course Code: PVT-132
Objectives & Topics
Upon completion of this program, the participant should be able to:
  1. Increase the participants' knowledge to better perform and/or interpret lower extremity venous evaluation for vein closure procedures.
  2. Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the upper and lower extremity venous systems into Venous duplex ultrasound evaluations.
  3. Cite Doppler/color physics and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls or (physicians) utilize this information for recognizing technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
  4. Perform routine scan protocols, and document Doppler waveforms for venous evaluation of the lower extremities, including pre and post vein ablation evaluation.
  5. Differentiate normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and Color characteristics of venous disease.
  6. State the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency during POST procedure evaluations.
  7. List the various options for treatment of venous insufficiency.
  8. Perform evaluation for venous insufficiency and patency of perforators for vein therapy treatment.
  9. Apply the diagnostic criteria for identifying significant venous insufficiency.
