Intensive Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation Review and Registry Preparation covers a wide spectrum of vascular laboratory diagnostics and includes both ultrasound and physiological testing. 
New topics include use of ultrasound in the pre-procedural planning and post-procedural follow-up after venous ablation procedures, essentials of quality and accreditation in the vascular laboratory.
After completing Intensive Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation Review and Registry Preparation, you should be better able to:
• Demonstrate understanding of basic ultrasound physics concepts and their application to vascular ultrasound
• Recognize common imaging and Doppler artifacts encountered in the vascular laboratory
• Utilize special Doppler waveforms to assist in the evaluation of arterial and venous disease
• Demonstrate interpretation skills for diagnosis of internal carotid artery stenosis using duplex ultrasound
• Demonstrate interpretation skills for diagnosis of acute venous thrombosis and venous incompetency using duplex ultrasound
• Utilize arterial physiology testing to localize anatomic extent and severity of lower extremity peripheral artery disease in the patient with claudication
• Apply standard diagnostic criteria to diagnose renal and mesenteric artery stenosis using duplex ultrasound
• Identify areas of knowledge deficit to improve preparation for the ARDMS Registered Physician in Ultrasound Review

Meetings By Mail presents the 25th Annual Advances in Vascular Imaging & Diagnosis. This course is the ultrasound component of the VEITHsymposium, and provides a comprehensive update on the diagnosis and management of vascular disease. The review prepares you for the Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) exam, which is facilitated by the Alliance for Physician Certification and Advancement (APCA).
Topics include real time B-mode imaging, color and spectral Doppler, non-invasive techniques, cerebrovascular issues, vascular lab management, vascular ultrasound education, reimbursement and laboratory accreditation. Hands-On presentations demonstrate scanning techniques in real time. HD video capture provides optimal image clarity, including presenters' cursor movements. DVD-ROM also includes exportable presentation files for viewing on iPads, smart phones and other mobile devices. 
After completing the 25th Annual Advances in Vascular Imaging & Diagnosis, you will be able to:
• Describe recent developments in vascular ultrasound technology. 
• Incorporate the Vascular Laboratory into the management of patients with vascular disease. 
• Identify and compare noninvasive tests that are available to aid in the diagnosis of vascular disease. 
• Identify current therapies and their roles for the effective management of peripheral arterial/venous disease, and carotid artery disease. 
• Utilize duplex ultrasound prior to, during and after endovascular procedures.
• Apply issues regarding Vascular Laboratory management, reimbursement and accreditation to your practice
