Description provided by the Organizer

Upon completion of this activity the learner should be able to:

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