Introduction to Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Imaging

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret upper and lower Peripheral Vascular ultrasound examinations.
Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the upper and lower extremity venous and arterial systems into the venous and arterial duplex and physiologic testing examinations.
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.
Perform routine scan protocols, and document Doppler waveforms for lower extremity arterial and venous evaluations of the upper and lower extremity.
Differentiate normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and color characteristics for identifying arterial and venous disease.
State the indications and applications of indirect testing methods for lower arterial disease.
Demonstrate vein mapping techniques to identify suitability as a potential arterial bypass graft.
Perform routine scan protocols and document Doppler waveforms for venous evaluation of the lower extremities, including pre and post vein ablation evaluation.
State the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency.
Perform evaluation for venous insufficiency and patency of perforators for vein therapy treatment
