Neurovascular Ultrasound: Carotid & TCD

35 0

Overview

The Neurovascular Ultrasound courses present the anatomy, pathophysiology and hemodynamics regarding the extra- and intracranial cerebral circulation. Carotid duplex sonography, color-flow imaging, carotid intima-media thickness measurement, transcranial Doppler (TCD), embolus detection and new developments in ultrasonographic methods are presented during both lectures and hands-on scanning lab sessions. The emphasis is on clinical applications, case examples and principles of interpretation. The courses are designed as a one week curriculum, and participants are encouraged to attend for the entire week. However, the first three days focus on principles, physics and extracranial carotid sonography, while the last two days focus on TCD. Either part may be attended separately. Charles H. Tegeler IV, MD, Director

Learner Objectives

At the conclusion of this continuing medical education activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Define the basic principles of ultrasound physics and technology, as well as pertinent anatomy, pathophysiology, and hemodynamics regarding the extra-and intracranial cerebral circulation.
  • Discuss indications and applications for extracranial duplex ultrasound, color-flow imaging, and transcranial Doppler ultrasound.
  • Discuss criteria for the interpretation of carotid duplex and transcranial Doppler ultrasound studies.
