What you will learn

Course description: 

Endovascular intervention is considered first-line therapy for most peripheral arterial occlusive disease. Noninvasive evaluation including duplex ultrasonography is considered by many specialists as the modality of choice for post-revascularization follow-up and the ongoing surveillance of peripheral arterial stents for patency and identification of in-stent restenosis, and occlusion among other complications. Creating standard protocols for noninvasive testing provides accurate information vital to the long-term patency of these conduits. This Philips Clinical Education 2-hour course for the noninvasive vascular testing professionals is developed to provide standards of performance protocols and diagnostic criteria for the noninvasive evaluation of peripheral arterial stents. The course includes lectures and numerous case studies that enable competent and confident imaging techniques with a systemic and detailed approach to protocol standards.

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

  • Demonstrate the appropriate knowledge of gross and sonographic anatomy of the upper and lower extremity arteries. 
  • Identify proper patient preparation, indications for testing, and imaging technique.
