Neurovascular Ultrasound: Carotid and Transcranial Doppler With Hands-On Scanning

Aug 16th, 2009Aug 20th, 2009
The Neurovascular Ultrasound courses present the basic principles of ultrasound physics and technology as well as anatomy, pathophysiology, and hemodynamics regarding the extra- and intracranial cerebral circulation. Carotid duplex sonography, color-flow imaging, carotid intima-media thickness measurement, transcranial Doppler (TCD), embolus detection, and new developments in ultrasonographic methods are presented during both lectures and hands-on scanning lab sessions. The emphasis is on clinical applications, case examples, and principles of interpretation. The courses are designed as a one-week curriculum, and students are encouraged to attend for the entire week. However, the first three days focus on principles, physics, and extracranial carotid sonography, while the last two days focus on TCD. Either part may be attended separately.
