What you will learn

Course description: 

This 2 hour course for noninvasive vascular ultrasound professionals who are performing or interpreting ultrasound for Hemodialysis access. The course includes lectures and interactive case study with program topics including a brief review of anatomy and physiology, pre-operative vessel mapping protocols for autogenous open, percutaneous fistula placement, graft placement, postoperative sonographic evaluation of the hemodialysis access, 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 hemodialysis pre/post-procedural ultrasound evaluations
  • Describe imaging protocols and diagnostic criteria used for duplex sonography of pre-op vessel mapping and post-op surveillance of hemodialysis vascular access
  • Obtain and/or increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques and interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic and treatment accuracy
  • Define the difference between hemodialysis access options
