What you will learn

Course description: 

This 2 hour course for noninvasive vascular ultrasound technologists is developed to meet the need to standardize performance protocols and
diagnostic criteria for noninvasive evaluation of extracranial carotid duplex ultrasound. The course includes lectures and interactive case study. Program topics include a brief review of extracranial and upper extremity anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology and sonographic evaluation of carotid artery stenosis, plaque morphology, as well as some of the tools that the EPIQ platform enables for increased clinical  confidence . Noninvasive vascular testing protocols and diagnostic criteria with case study correlations including DSA angiography, CTA and MRA will also be presented.



Course objectives: 

Upon completion of this course, attendees should be able to:

  • Demonstrate the appropriate knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and general approach for disease management
  • Demonstrate different imaging protocols and diagnostic criteria used for duplex sonography of the extracranial carotid arteries and associated vascular structures.
  • Obtain and/or increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques and interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic and treatment accuracy
