Gulfcoast: Carotid Stenosis Assessment



Carotid Stenosis Assessment Training Video is designed to provide an overview of carotid duplex/color flow imaging techniques and criteria to diagnose cerebrovascular disease. The lecture includes how to analyze the spectral Doppler waveform characteristics, integration of routine measurements, and carotid case presentations. The participant will be able to apply current diagnostic criteria to evaluate carotid stenosis and other associated abnormalities after viewing this video.
