Hands-on Workshop in Vascular Ultrasound, Barcelona
The course provides a thorough grounding in the clinical skills to work in vascular ultrasound. During the course, participants are presented an intensive series of short lectures focused on technical aspects of the different US examinations, covering essentially basic exams but also touching on more advanced topics like the measurement of Pedal Acceleration Time and EVAR follow-up. Two weeks before the course, participants will have access to the online module that includes a full-length recording of the lectures. This allows a comprehensive coverage of the theory saving time for on-site hands-on. Some topics will be explained while performing the exam live in the same room.
Classroom teaching is supplemented by sessions at the Vascular Laboratory, where participants have the opportunity to practice their skills under supervision on patients with relevant disease and on silicone models for US guided puncture. Hands-on sessions last 5 hours each day. (5 participants / 1 tutor / 1 station)
Before attending the course, participants will have access to an on-line blended learning module that will introduce them to the basic knowledge of ultrasound and the standards of the different examinations.
The e-learning module includes:
• recordings of the presentations of all lectures.
• a quiz that helps to review basic concepts of US physics, the anatomy of commonly examined areas and most important diagnostic criteria.
• a forum open to questions from all participants.
• a survey about previous US experience that will help us to prepare the groups for the workshop.
This preparatory module is intended as a tool to save time in lectures, allowing more time for hands-on practice. It will open 15 days before the course and close one month after it. Registered participants will receive access instructions before April 21th .
Accreditation: CME accreditation is being sought for this course.
Participants’ qualifications: The workshop is addressed mainly to novice trainees and to those willing to prepare for the CCVUS examination.
