The Venous Insufficiency Course is a specialized class for sonographers and physicians who will be incorporating the complexity of venous insufficiency evaluation and various means of therapy into their individual laboratories and practices. This course covers specific pathophysiology, relevant anatomy, interpretation skills as well as pre and post operative ultrasound assessment. Individuals who attend this course MUST have good working knowledge of venous anatomy and pathophysiology or have attended the Lower Extremity Venous Testing course during the vascular ultrasound series. An ample portion of the day is set aside for hands on scanning with individualized instruction using models with and without pathology.

Designed to assist physicians in gaining interpretation experience, this two-day workshop focuses on the major vascular ultrasound examinations to meet accreditation requirements. Day one concentrates on carotid duplex interpretation with additional tips on dictating vascular reports. Day two focuses on duplex interpretation of peripheral arterial, peripheral venous and renal artery exams. Skills are developed through actual case studies and interpretation simulation. The course covers both basic and advanced concepts.

» COURSE OBJECTIVES
Students who successfully complete the course will be able to:
• Demonstrate a basic knowledge of cerebrovascular, venous, arterial and abdominal vasculature anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology.
• Understand the proper techniques for the performance of vascular testing and potential pitfalls that may interfere with the interpretation.
• Recognize normal and abnormal Doppler spectral waveforms.
• Understand typical case studies in each area of vascular testing and develop the interpretation skills to generate a formal report specific to each area of testing.
