Objectives

Upon completion of these enduring materials, the viewer should be able to accomplish the following:

  1. Increase the participants’ knowledge and competence to perform and/or interpret vascular ultrasound examinations.
  2. Analyze Doppler/Color physics factors that affect optimal Doppler examinations and commonly seen Doppler/Color artifacts, which may affect diagnostic accuracy.
  3. Recognize normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and Color Doppler findings seen with carotid and peripheral arterial and venous disease.
  4. Cite the role of indirect testing in the evaluation of lower extremity arterial disease.
  5. Apply diagnostic criteria for evaluation of carotid, peripheral venous and arterial disease.
  6. Interpret complex carotid and peripheral vascular case studies in an interactive interpretation session format.
  7. Recognize ultrasound findings associated with aortic endograft leaks.
  8. Differentiate normal and abnormal spectral Doppler characteristics associated with renal artery and dialysis access graft evaluations.
  9. Integrate the key diagnostic elements into a structured report.
  10. Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques and diagnostic criteria to improve diagnosis/treatment accuracy.
