DMS 207 - Advanced Vascular Ultrasound


Credits: 5
5 Lecture Hours

Prerequisites: DMS 137C  
Co-requisites: DMS 210  and DMS 235C  

Description
This is a continuation of Vascular Ultrasound in which the emphasis is placed on pathological states of the peripheral vascular, cerebrovascular and abdominal vascular systems. This course will offer valuable information on Doppler vascular imaging to sonographers planning to sit for the vascular boards. Technical information such as spectral analysis in Doppler, hemodynamics of the circulatory system as well as scanning techniques and protocols will be covered. This course requires a per credit health career fee; check the tuition and fee schedule for the current rate.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Identify the abnormal hemodynamics of the cerebral, peripheral and abdominal vascular systems.
  2. Distinguish the abnormal sonographic characteristics of the cerebral, peripheral and abdominal vascular systems from normal vessels using 2-D scanning techniques.
  3. Scan for and differentiate between normal and abnormal vessels within the vascular systems.
  4. Analyze and interpret the abnormal sonographic findings of the spectral Doppler waveform of the cerebral, peripheral and abdominal vascular systems.
  5. Analyze and interpret the abnormal color spectral image of the cerebral, peripheral and abdominal vascular systems.
  6. Identify the normal and abnormal vasculature of the female pelvis and male genitalia.
Listed Topics
  1. Pathology causing abnormal hemodynamics of blood flow through the vascular system
  2. Scanning techniques and sonographic characteristics of pathology of the various vascular systems
Reference Materials
Textbooks, library resources, journals, videotapes and CD’s in DMS lab and lab equipment.
