  The Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics offers a course of study in vascular technology. This course is designed to assist those cross-training in the modality and offers didactic information necessary to prepare for the ARDMS exams. Attendees can choose from a one week course option providing “hands on” scan sessions. The one week course provides an overview of vascular technology with an emphasis on normal anatomy and scanning techniques.


Mobile, Alabama

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 1 month prior to the class
***Tuition should accompany the application***

The Institute of Ultrasound Diagnostics is proud to present a five-day seminar on vascular applications presented by Mr. David Barry, RVT. Spectral and Color Doppler Physics will be discussed in detail as well as vascular anatomy and hemodynamics. Correlation’s between the Doppler modalities will be covered s that attendees can properly interpret the information on their scans. The optimization of the major Doppler controls of each modality will be discussed and many examples will be shown. The “Know-how” to optimize these functions will be given on the use of Doppler in each of the following studies:

  • Carotid Arteries

  • Peripheral Venous

  • Peripheral Arterial

  • Abdominal

  • These clinical presentations will include the anatomy and hemodynamics of the vessels under discussion, normal and abnormal studies and scan hints. All of the studies will be demonstrated and attendees will be provided ample time for practice during scanning sessions.

    An in-depth review of all the material covered will be held each day. This time will include group discussions, questions & answers and a quiz. This will help insure the attendees of knowing what further study they may require. This general overview of vascular sonography is intended as an introduction, therefore, proficiency should not be expected at the conclusion of the week. We recommend this program for sonographers already proficient in another specialty of ultrasound.
