Anatomy and physiology of the circulation is covered, along with the signs and symptoms of peripheral vascular disease. An overview of ultrasound and Doppler physics is included. Scanning labs address technical skills for both the novice and those with experience in ultrasound imaging and concentrate upon duplex and color flow Doppler modalities. With an emphasis on the interpretation of test results, this course has been designed as one for physicians, general/cardiac sonographers and vascular technologists.Carotid artery disease is addressed in a separate Neurovascular Course.
