Target Audience
This course is designed to educate those who order, perform, and interpret clinical ultrasound studies. It should be particularly valuable for diagnostic imaging physicians, ob-gyn physicians, vascular surgeons, and referring physicians who utilize ultrasound to evaluate the clinical status of their patients. The symposium should also be valuable for sonographers who perform these procedures.
Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Optimize clinical protocols for evaluating the vascular system.
  • Discuss the advantages and pitfalls of contrast enhanced ultrasound and elastography.
  • Utilize ultrasound to assess patients with abdominal and pelvic disorders.
  • Demonstrate an increased knowledge into the applications of Doppler imaging.
  • Apply modern imaging techniques to clinical practice.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
