Patients presenting with venous (deep vein thrombosis (DVT), chronicle venous incompetency and arterial stenosis (renal and abdominal aortic stenosis) can be comprehensively assessed and monitored through duplex ultrasound (DUS), which consists of a combination of two-dimensional ultrasound and spectral Doppler examination. In clinical practice, DUS can be used to identify incompetent veins and arterial stenosis to determinate whether or not an abnormal vesssel is responsible for the patient’s complication. However, an appropriate technique is required to assess veins and arteries. This four-day program has been designed to provide a foundation for the use of state-of-the-art techniques in advanced vascular diagnosis for Sonographers, Vascular Surgeons and all other interested ultrasound medical practitioners. Prior experience in routine scanning and prior knowledge of basic ultrasound is assumed. The topics provide an overview of anatomical and ultrasound pattern recognition in various abdominal and peripheral vessels. Discussions will be held on examination techniques and the avoidance of common inaccuracies encountered in practice. Particular attention is given to both the role of colour Doppler and the practical probe manipulation manoeuvres required to obtain good ultrasound “windows” of vessels. Students will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have acquired in small group “hands-on” tutorial sessions that are directed by our team of experienced vascular sonographers. Course Objectives:• To provide an understanding of the basics of non-ultrasound peripheral arterial testing• To provide extended practical tuition in the techniques of vascular scanning, including colour & spectral Doppler techniques
