Vascular ultrasound is an important imaging modality in vascular surgery. The objective is to teach participants how to perform some of the most basic vascular ultrasound examinations: abdominal aorta, femoral arteries, peripheral bypasses, basic carotid ultrasound, percutaneous access, deep venous thromboses and varicose veins.

Participants will have the opportunity to practice their skills under supervision during the course. This course corresponds to the curriculum of the theoretical part of EFSUMB Level 1 in Vascular Ultrasound (European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology). Online quizzes and tests will be conducted regularly during the course and the faculty underlines that attendance in the entire course is mandatory in order to receive a course certificate. The course is a first step on the pathway to prepare you well, for the CCVUS exam at the ESVS Annual Meeting next year in Belfast.


Participants’ qualifications

The course is designed for vascular surgeons, vascular surgeons in training and vascular nurses and technologists. No prior ultrasound experience is required but basic knowledge of vascular anatomy and physiology is expected.


CME accreditation is not being sought for this course.
