Objectives: Vascular ultrasound provides immediate diagnostic, and may provide clinically important information not obtained by any other imaging modality. Vascular ultrasound is harmless and can be performed bedside. The course is a 50% theoretical and 50% hands-on course. During the course, participants will be taught in physics and principles behind vascular ultrasound, ultrasound anatomy and how to perform basic vascular ultrasound examination: abdominal aorta, femoral arteries, peripheral bypasses, basic carotid ultrasound, deep venous thromboses, varicose veins and A-V fistula. Classroom sessions will be followed by hands-on sessions, where course participants will have the opportunity to practice under supervision on patients with relevant vascular diseases. 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). Attendance in the entire course is mandatory in order to receive a course certificate and CME points.
Participants’ qualifications: The course is aimed at vascular surgeons, vascular residents, nurses, technicians, sonographers taking their first steps. Knowledge of human anatomy is mandatory but prior experience with ultrasound is not required.
CME: CME accreditation is being requested for this session.
