  • The Vascular Case Studies Review online course has been designed with the interpreting physician in mind. Its main focus is to expose participants to a wide variety of cases in order to improve competence in the diagnosis/interpretation of vascular pathologies. This video-based series for vascular ultrasound interpretation training is led by the leading expert faculty in vascular ultrasound case reviews.

    Recorded during a live Vascular Case Review program, our expert faculty presents over 100 cases in a “double-read” format. The patient history/physical examination is provided along with the corresponding ultrasound case documentation. Using the online course 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 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, lab accreditation requirements and/or prepare for individual certification.

    Course Objectives
    At the completion of this enduring material, the participant should be able to:

    1. Increase the participants' knowledge and competence to interpret vascular ultrasound examinations.
    2. List routine scan protocols and analyze normal spectral waveform signatures, color characteristics and Doppler measurements in a normal carotid and peripheral vascular examinations.
    3. Recognize abnormal spectral /color Doppler findings seen with carotid, peripheral arterial and venous disease.
    4. Apply diagnostic criteria for evaluation of carotid, peripheral venous and arterial disease.
    5. Interpret routine and complex carotid, peripheral vascular, and abdominal Doppler case studies in an interactive “double-read” format.
    6. Apply diagnostic criteria for interpretation of physiologic arterial examinations.
    7. Recognize normal/abnormal spectral/color Doppler findings associated with Abdominal Vascular disease.
    8. Cite the key elements to include in a structured final report.
