Course Description
The Introduction to Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound hands-on course is a live, two-day hands-on course taught by leading vascular ultrasound experts. This course is the first step in obtaining a strong foundation to begin performing and/or interpreting peripheral arterial and venous ultrasound examinations. The Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound training program includes lectures, interactive case presentations using an audience response system (ARS), and extensive hands-on training featuring a 3:1 hands-on ratio using live models for a realistic training experience. In addition, this program also incorporates the review of 65+ peripheral vascular ultrasound examinations.

Program topics include upper and lower extremity venous duplex/color flow imaging, lower extremity arterial duplex/color flow imaging, and lower extremity arterial physiologic testing, including segmental pressures, ABIs and PVRs. All Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound protocols are taught in accordance with AIUM and IAC guidelines.

This intensive hands-on peripheral vascular ultrasound program provides the training needed to immediately begin integrating the newly acquired skills into clinical practice.
Objectives & Topics
Upon completion of this program, the participant should be able to:
  1. Increase the participants’ knowledge to better perform and/or interpret upper and lower Peripheral Vascular ultrasound examinations.
  2. Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the upper & lower extremity venous and arterial systems into the venous & arterial duplex and physiologic testing examinations.
  3. 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.
  4. Perform routine scan protocols, and document Doppler waveforms for lower extremity arterial and venous evaluations of the upper and lower extremity.
  5. Differentiate normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and color characteristics for identifying arterial and venous disease.
  6. State the indications and applications of indirect testing methods for lower arterial disease.
  7. Demonstrate vein mapping techniques to identify suitability as a potential arterial bypass graft.
  8. Perform routine scan protocols and document Doppler waveforms for venous evaluation of the lower extremities, including pre and post vein ablation evaluation.
  9.  State the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency.
  10. Perform evaluation for venous insufficiency and patency of perforators for vein therapy treatment.

  • Doppler fundamentals
  • Venous anatomy/scan techniques, normal characteristics
  • Venous pathology
  • Live demo: Lower extremity evaluation of DVT
  • Upper extremity venous evaluation
