This course has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, sonographers, and other allied healthcare professionals who wish to improve their comprehension of venous ultrasound physicians and instrumentation, and develop their ability to perform lower extremity venous ultrasound evaluation and mapping for vein ablation procedures.
As a result of this activity the participant will be able to:
- Recognize anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the deep and superficial venous system - deep vein thrombosis (DVT), superficial vein thrombosis (SVT), superficial thrombophlebitis (STP), deep venous insufficiency (DVI), and superficial venous insufficiency (SVI)
- Recognize anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the deep and superficial venous system - typical and unusual presentations of venous hemodynamics
- Recognize roles of b-mode, color, and spectral Doppler ultrasound in making the diagnosis of DVT, DVI, SVT, and SVI
- Perform an all-inclusive lower extremity venous examination using proper technique and protocol on patients with common and complicated venous disorders
- Document all pertinent findings and suspected pathology and create a comprehensive and precise venous mapping
- Recognize the main pitfalls in venous extremity ultrasound and apply the technical and clinical pearls and tips
