Carotid/Cerebrovascular Case Studies Online Course has been designed to provide a large variety of cases in order to improve competence in the diagnosis/interpretation of carotid/cerebrovascular ultrasound pathologies. Recorded during a live Vascular Case Review program, our expert faculty presents 38 cases in a “double-read” format. The patient history/physical examination is provided along with the corresponding ultrasound case documentation.

Using the interactive format, participants will answer one or more multiple choice questions pertaining to each case. After submitting the answer to each question, the correct diagnosis will be discussed including correlation with other diagnostic modalities. The learner's responses to each question are recorded in order to provide a case log report of the exams interpreted. The double read case log may be used to meet hospital credentialing, individual certification*, and/or lab accreditation requirements.
