The course provides a thorough grounding in the clinical skills to work in vascular ultrasound. During the course, participants are presented to an intensive series of short lectures focussed on technical aspects of the different US examinations. Lecturers explain the examinations while performing one in the same room on selected patients. Classroom teaching is supplemented by sessions at the Vascular Laboratory, where participants have the opportunity to practice their skills under supervision on patients with relevant disease and on silicone models for US guided puncture.
Hands-on sessions last 5 hours each day. (4 participants /1 tutor/ 1 station)
The workshop is addressed mainly to novice trainees and to those willing to prepare for the CCVUS examination.
Before attending the course, participants will have access to an on-line blended learning module that will introduce them to the basic knowledge of ultrasound and the standards of the different examinations. The e-learning module includes:
– all presentations of previous editions.
– a quiz that helps to rewiew basic concepts of US physics, the anatomy of usualy examined areas and most important diagnostic criteria.
– a forum open to questions from all participants.
– a survey about previous US experience that will help us to prepare the groups for the workshop.
This preparotory module is intended as a tool to save time in lectures, allowing more time for hands-on. It will open 15 days before the course and close one month after it.
Registered participants will receive access intructions before April 20th .
Who should attend?
The course is designed for vascular surgeons, vascular surgeons in training and vascular nurses, sonographers and technologists. Practical experience with vascular ultrasound is required as well as theoretical knowledge corresponding to the ESVS course in basic vascular ultrasound.
