· It is a one month comprehensive ultrasound course in vascular Doppler sonography.
· The course comprises of basic principles of Doppler physics with application and evaluation of Color Doppler, PW Doppler, CW Doppler and Power Doppler for all neck vessels, upper and lower limb vessels, abdominal arteries, veins, portal veins and their major branches, tributaries, and also fetal assessment by Doppler in OBGYN Ultrasound.
· Vascular Ultrasound courses are delivered with a main focus on the acquisition of basic practical skills on scanning techniques and protocols with AIUM/ARDMS standard protocol.
· With Vascular ultrasound, now a central component for Vascular disease assessment, this course will give you the practical and theoretical knowledge to perform and understand ultrasound examination in Carotid Doppler, Peripheral Arterial Doppler, Venous Doppler for assessment of DVT, Abdominal vessels Doppler specially Renal Artery Doppler assessment and also Doppler study in Obstetrics, specially Fetal Doppler for assessment of Placental insufficiency, fetal hypoxia, Preeclampsia & IUGR.
· One to One Hands-on training is the main focus on practical skills acquisition with practical and didactic classes with instructor-student ratios of 1:4.
· State of the art training facility with modern ultrasound equipment ranging from basic machine to High Resolution Color Doppler, PW/CW Doppler and Power Doppler along with 3D/4D facilities.
· Are you a Sonologist looking to develop your Vascular ultrasound skills?
· Are you regularly called on to perform Vascular Assessment?
· Are you a Vascular Surgeon looking to learn Vascular Doppler ultrasound for vascular disease assessment?
· Are you a Obstetrician, wants to learn application of Doppler in Obstetrics?
· Do you simply want to improve, refresh or extend your technique?
· Do you want to sit for ARDMS registry exam on vascular technology (RVT)?
“Then this is the right course for you!
· Vascular ultrasound, a fundamental component of your practice, this program will give you the practical and theoretical knowledge to perform and understand vascular Doppler assessment with a set of new skills ready to apply in the real world.
