OBJECTIVES

  • Identify normal and abnormal Doppler waveforms for all the extracranial cerebrovascular vessels – CCA, ECA, ICA and Vertebral.
  • Integrate all imaging, color Doppler and spectral Doppler data to determine the diagnosis of carotid stenosis.
  • Determine valid means to select the most appropriate carotid stenosis criteria for diagnosis.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Physicians, sonographers and other medical professionals involved with performing and/or interpreting vascular ultrasound examinations. Physician participants may include (but is not limited to): vascular surgery, radiology, cardiology, internal medicine, primary care, and general surgery .

ACCREDITATION STATEMENT
