Course description: 

Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has emerged as an alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for revascularization of carotid occlusive disease in specific high-risk circumstances. With the exponential increase in carotid stenting, ISR may become increasingly prevalent, and these patients will require intensive follow-up monitoring for recurrence.

In recent years, duplex ultrasonography has been considered a valued noninvasive diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of carotid artery occlusive disease and the ongoing surveillance of carotid stents for patency and identification of in-stent restenosis and other complications. Creating standard protocols for duplex sonographic evaluation provides accurate information vital to the long-term patency of these conduits. This Philips Clinical Education 2-hour course for ultrasound professionals is developed to provide standards of performance protocols and diagnostic criteria for the duplex ultrasonography evaluation of Carotid artery stents (CAS). The course includes lectures and numerous case studies that enable competent and confident imaging techniques with a systemic and detailed approach to protocol standards.



Course objectives: 

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

  • Demonstrate the appropriate knowledge of gross and sonographic anatomy of the extracranial cerebrovascular arterial circulation.
  • Identify proper patient preparation, indications for testing, and imaging technique
  • Describe normal and abnormal findings after CAS
  • Employ optimization techniques to improve clinical confidence and disease management
