Vascular Doppler Ultrasound

(Peripheral Doppler Sonography)

  • Key features:

    • It is a 15 days Comprehensive ultrasound course for Vascular Doppler.
    • Vascular Doppler 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 Doppler 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 Arterial Doppler specially Renal Artery Doppler assessment and also Doppler study in Obstetrics, specially Fetal Doppler for assessment of Placental insufficiency, fetal hypoxia, Pre-eclamsia & 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 1:3.
    • 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.
    • The utilization of real patient supplemented by videos, slides, lectures etc.
    • Time-frame can be extended up to 30 days according to the participant’s special needs.
  • Target group:

    • Are you regularly called on to perform Vascular Assessment?
    • Are you a Sonologist looking to develop your Vascular Doppler ultrasound skills?
    • Are you a Vascular Surgeon looking to learn Vascular Doppler ultrasound for vascular disease assessment?
    • Are you a Obstetrician – wants to learn Doppler in Obstetrics?
    • Do you simply want to improve, refresh or extend your technique?
    • Vascular Doppler 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.
  • Course Objectives:
