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
