Course Code: VAS P
This 2 day “hands on” course is designed for medical practitioners and other technologists interested in Ultrasound scanning of the superficial and deep venous systems and ABI’s of the lower limb.
The emphasis is on developing practical diagnostic scanning techniques, navigational skills and an understanding of the normal and pathological sonographic patterns and appearances.
The course includes the basic physics of Ultrasound, Knobology, the physics of Doppler and Colour Doppler as well as probe orientation and manipulation techniques. Practical scanning of the superficial and deep venous systems of the lower limb, including CVI (chronic venous insufficiency), venous mapping, DVT (deep venous thrombosis) examinations and ABI (Ankle Brachial Index).
The small group structure ensures a collaborative and supportive learning environment utilising a mixture of didactic lecture tuition and real time scanning techniques. A range of equipment is used in conjunction with scanning models ensuring consolidation of practical scanning skills.
