Ultrasound - Carotid Course Description
This CME medical conference will provide an overview of the basic principles of
carotid duplex scanning. It will provide pertinent information concerning
normal extra cranial anatomy and carotid artery pathology. Emphasis will be
placed on the examination and interpretation of the duplex scan of the carotid
artery. Case examples of normal and abnormal ultrasound examinations will be
provided with the opportunity to interpret.
For those without any prior experience in ultrasound technique, attendance at
this CME medical conference would still assist in understanding how the exam is
performed, what reports mean and what it can reveal. However, the basics of ultrasound technology will NOT be reviewed. Previous Ultrasound experience or taking the Echocardiography CME medical conference course prior to taking
this course would be helpful.
By the end of this workshop, participants should be better able to:
- Identify normal carotid artery anatomy and pathology with ultrasound.
- Discuss the ultrasound protocol for a carotid artery examination.
- Categorize carotid artery pathology utilizing current guidelines.
