TCD Basics [VT]
Transcranial duplex (TCD) sonography now has a wide number of appropriate clinical applications, but this test is not performed in many vascular settings. This talk will focus on the basics of the TCD examination and describe the rationale for many of these accepted applications.


10 Things Sonographers Should Do - But Often Don’t [SPI]
With more complex protocols and the demand for higher patient volumes, sonographers may not feel they have the time to take advantage of the advanced features of today's machines. This talk will highlight ten such features and how they can positively impact the diagnostic quality of an examination.
Evaluation of Venous Insufficiency in Three Simple Steps [VT]
This talk will describe the techniques and protocol necessary for a complete duplex sonography examination for lower extremity venous insufficiency. It will cover gray scale, color Doppler, and spectral Doppler details with appropriate machine settings. The focus will be on the deep venous system, the superficial venous system, and the perforating (communicating) veins, as well as the relative importance of each of these systems for the varying types and severity of insufficiency commonly seen in the vascular laboratory.

Ultrasound’s Role in Patients with Hypertension: It’s Not All About Renal Artery Stenosis
Ultrasound can be a great screening tool to evaluate patients who present with hypertension. However not every patient needs a full renal artery study. Most clinicians are simply looking for some simple information that can be quickly and easily determined with ultrasound. Come learn what patients need a full renal artery study and which patients only need a renal study with a few Doppler signals.
