This course will offer valuable information to those sonographers planning to sit for the RVT boards, and introduce the new sonographers to Doppler Vascular Imaging. Normal as well as pathological states of the peripheral and cerebrovascular system will be covered. Technical information such as protocols, spectral analysis in Doppler and scanning techniques will be taught as well as hemodynamics of the circulatory system and the physics and instrumentation of Doppler. During the practical lab experience the student applies classroom learning to scanning problems.
