Gulfcoast Introduction to Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound 2022


Introduction to Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound Online Course is the first step in obtaining a strong foundation to begin performing and/or interpreting peripheral vascular duplex/color flow & indirect PV ultrasound examinations. The peripheral vascular ultrasound protocols are taught in accordance with AIUM and IAC guidelines.


  • Increase the participants’ knowledge to better perform and/or interpret upper and lower Peripheral Vascular ultrasound examinations.
  • Apply knowledge of the anatomy/physiology of the upper & lower extremity venous and arterial systems into the venous & arterial duplex and physiologic testing examinations.
  • Cite Doppler/color physics and be able to (sonographers) apply these principles to optimize system controls and/or (physicians) utilize this information for recognizing technical errors which may result in misdiagnosis.
  • Perform routine scan protocols, and document Doppler waveforms for lower extremity arterial and venous evaluations of the upper and lower extremity.
  • Differentiate normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and color characteristics for identifying arterial and venous disease.
  • State the indications and applications of indirect testing methods for lower arterial disease.
  • Demonstrate vein mapping techniques to identify suitability as a potential arterial bypass graft.
  • Perform routine scan protocols and document Doppler waveforms for venous evaluation of the lower extremities, including pre and post vein ablation evaluation.
  • State the role of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency.
  • Perform evaluation for venous insufficiency and patency of perforators for vein therapy treatment.
  • Cite the sonographic appearance of an abdominal aortic and popliteal aneurysm.
  • List the diagnostic criteria for aneurysm evaluation.
  • List the etiology of pseudo-aneurysm.
  • Recognize the duplex/color characteristics associated with pseudoaneurysm
