Carotid Objectives:

  1. Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret Carotid Duplex/Color Flow Imaging ultrasound examinations.
  2. Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the cerebrovascular system into the Carotid Duplex examination.
  3. Cite Doppler/color physics principles and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls or (physicians) utilize this information for identifying technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
  4. Perform routine scan protocols and Doppler calculations in a complete carotid duplex/color examination.
  5. Differentiate normal/abnormal spectral Doppler/color characteristics.
  6. List methods for obtaining quantitative information and state the diagnostic relevance of each measurement.
  7. Characterize plaque morphology and other pathology associated with cerebral vascular disease.
  8. Perform Intima-Media Thickness measurements and state the clinical significance as a screening method for cardiovascular disease.
  9. Integrate the information to include and prepare a structured report for a carotid ultrasound examination.
  10. Apply diagnostic criteria for accurate interpretation of carotid duplex/color flow examinations

Peripheral Vascular Objectives:

  1. Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret upper and lower Peripheral Vascular ultrasound examinations.
  2. 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.
  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 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
