 Vascular Ultrasound - The Hands-On Carotid and Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound Course 2017
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:Hands-on intensive vascular ultrasound training with lectures and one-on-one discussion to build the complete ultrasound protocol to acquire and analyze all images. For all specialties and experience levels.
You'll learn the complete protocols for all aspects of vascular ultrasound imaging, including: carotid and vertebral arterial disease (including IMT), DVT, Baker's cyst, venous valvular incompetence, arterial obstruction, graft and stent assessment, renal vascular disease, and vascular access.
We'll practice the protocols repeatedly in the Scan Lab and explain each step, with the clinical implications underlying each one. After regular class hours the Scan Lab remains open around the clock for you to practice independently, on yourself or with your peers in class.
Class is small, permitting us to identify and respond to your individual needs at every step. Every question you have about vascular testing, hemodynamics, or physics is going to be answered. Even graduates of formal ultrasound programs attend to better understand the clinical relationship of these tests, in preparation for the CCI, ARDMS, and ACR certification exams.
  Location:Hilton Homewood Suites Hotel      Las Colinas, TX   USA
  Director(s):Keith Mauney
  Sponsor:Keith Mauney & Associates
  Comments:Class is strictly small so we can spend time on the topics we need to cover and all the ones you want to discuss. Our approach is totally focused on the patient diagnosis. No faculty members have any commercial interests or participation that might influence course content. There is no formal test in this class. Learners are evaluated continuously and positive feedback is offered throughout. (see website for Objectives)

 NAVIX's Preceptorship in the Interpretation of Vascular Ultrasound
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:The course is designed to train physicians in the interpretation of vascular testing modalities including cerebrovascular, extremity arterial, extremity venous and visceral vascular.

Participants will expand or enhance their knowledge of vascular ultrasound in a collaborative learning environment that combines didactic lectures and hands-on scanning with mentored cases in a small group setting. The following interpretations of up to 500 vascular ultrasound cases presenting diverse vascular pathologies.
  Location:Navix Facilities      Philadelphia, PA   USA
  Comments:This course is designed to train vascular surgeons, cardiologists, radiologists, neurologists, nephrologists, medicine practitioners and other physicians in all areas of vascular ultrasound including:
•  Carotid Duplex Ultrasound
•  Transcranial Doppler
•  Peripheral Arterial Physiologic Testing
•  Peripheral Arterial Duplex Ultrasound
•  Venous Duplex Ultrasound
•  Visceral Vascular Duplex Ultrasound

 Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:Central venous catheterization and PICC line insertions can be difficult and can cause serious complications. Central venous cannulation (CVC) is an important procedure in the practice of emergency and critical care medicine. A PICC line is, by definition and per its acronym, a peripherally inserted central catheter, and ultrasound is rapidly becoming a tool of choice for identifying the venous anatomy needed for success. With the increasing ability of bedside ultrasound the technology has proven to reduce error and improve patient care. The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, the Institute of Medicine and the National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence have all endorsed ultrasound-guided central venous cannulation (UGCVC) as a recommended practice. Given the importance of CVC it is paramount that physicians become proficient with UGCVC.

Ultrasound guided vascular access is rapidly becoming the standard of care in many medical institutions. Basic ultrasound expertise is invaluable, but there is a whole array of ultrasound procedures that can be performed that will increase your effectiveness and diagnostic accuracy. Go beyond the basics and get the skills you need to expand your effective use of ultrasound in your clinical environment!

Participants in this course will benefit from demonstration, hands-on scanning with phantoms where the ultrasound faculty will teach you the essential skills and techniques to perform exams that make a difference in patient outcomes by demonstrating deep vein thrombosis, or need for an intervention that can be done under ultrasound guidance.

  Location:Advanced Health Education Center      Houston, TX   USA
  Sponsor:Advanced Health Education Center
  Comments:Learning Objectives
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

•  Define deep vein thrombosis and list factors that would put a patient at risk for DVT.
•  Explain how to place a central line under ultrasound guidance

Course Topics:
•  Venous orientation and pathology to demonstrate DVT
•  Upper and lower extremities, to include the jugular, subclavian, femoral, saphenous, basilic and superficial veins of the upper extremity
•  Proper way to compress veins
•  Use color Doppler to evaluate areas of suspected DVT prior to inserting a line
•  Central and peripheral line placement
•  PICC lines will be introduced as important and time saving ways of managing critically ill patients
•  Hands-on practice will be offered for all topics using phantoms

 Conference On Venous Ultrasound
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:Vascular ultrasound has progressed over the years to become much more than a screening tool. From its early beginnings of grainy black and white two dimensional images, to the addition of Doppler and color flow, it has become the modality of choice for early detection of peripheral arterial, cerebrovascular, and venous disease. For the detection of DVT and venous reflux, duplex testing is now the gold standard other modalities are compared to. Accurate diagnostic testing of the vascular system requires a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and hemodynamics as well as the various pathological conditions that can present. Multiple variables such as cardiac output, dehydration, and infection can all have an impact on the vascular system.

This two-day seminar provides a overview of physics and instrumentation, anatomy and hemodynamics, and diagnostic criteria suitable for anyone from an experienced sonographer to the beginner. For the physician wanting a more thorough understanding of the capabilities and potential of the vascular lab, along with interpretative criteria, our extensive library of case studies will prove invaluable. Our scan lab and state of the art equipment, along with our low student instructor ratios allow you plenty of time to perfect your protocol, and acquire the scanning experience necessary to perform diagnostic vascular exams.
  Location:Advanced Health Education Center      Houston, TX   USA
  Sponsor:Advanced Health Education Center
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:

•  Correctly identify vessel anatomy and orientation in a vascular ultrasound examination.
•  Identify the variations in instrumentation and Doppler principles and the effects in scanning parameters.
•  Describe the flow characteristics and the manifestations of disease processes.
•  Discuss QA of the procedure and equipment. Analyze the results of a vascular exam for pathological conditions and in certain cases, quantify the diseases. Identify additional resource information on vascular ultrasound.

Course Topics

• Overview of the physical principles of ultrasound including Doppler and color flow
• Comprehensive review of the ultrasound platform controls enabling you to optimize your system for even the most difficult patient
• Venous diagnostics including techniques for the detection of DVT and Venous reflux
• Case studies, pearls and pitfalls, and standardized reporting Hands-on scan lab
