This course will expose sonographers who are unfamiliar with vascular sonographic and other non-invasive techniques to the fundamental principles of diagnostic testing of the cerebrovascular, peripheral, and abdominal vascular systems. Topics that will be emphasized include extracranial cerebrovascular imaging, non-invasive peripheral arterial and venous testing, and abdominal vasculature sonography. Identification of relevant normal anatomy, pathology, and hemodynamics are explored utilizing B-mode, color flow Doppler, plethysmographic, and spectral Doppler waveform analysis.
All prerequisites must be completed with a minimum grade of C (2.00).
