Physician Interpretation Course

Designed to assist physicians in gaining interpretation experience, this two-day workshop focuses on the major vascular ultrasound examinations to meet accreditation requirements. Day one concentrates on carotid duplex interpretation with additional tips on dictating vascular reports. Day two focuses on duplex interpretation of peripheral arterial, peripheral venous and renal artery exams. Skills are developed through actual case studies and interpretation simulation. The course covers both basic and advanced concepts.
