Explore Non-invasive Vascular Testing

This online CME program — developed in partnership with the Society for Vascular Medicine — spans 30+ lectures that will expose you to all aspects of non-invasive testing. Abundant case study materials and over 100 registry-type exam questions will help those who work within the non-invasive vascular laboratory to prepare for the RPVI examination. It’s a continuing medical education program that provides valuable insight on:

  • Imaging techniques (B-mode, color and spectral Doppler, physiological testing)
  • Various testing protocols and diagnostic criteria
  • A broad range of vascular pathology, both common and rare
  • Fundamentals of vascular physics
  • Quality improvement and patient safety

Unique Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this CME activity, you will be better able to:

  • Recognize basic ultrasound physics concepts and their application to vascular ultrasound
  • Identify common imaging and Doppler artifacts encountered in the vascular laboratory
  • Use B-mode imaging, color Doppler analysis, and spectral Doppler waveforms to assist in the diagnosis of arterial and venous disease
  • Apply interpretation skills for diagnosis of internal carotid artery stenosis using duplex ultrasound
  • Apply interpretation skills for diagnosis of acute venous thrombosis and venous valvular reflux using duplex ultrasound
  • Use arterial duplex and physiological testing to assess severity and anatomic location of lower extremity arterial disease
  • Apply standard diagnostic criteria to diagnose abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and renal and mesenteric artery stenosis using duplex ultrasound
  • Recognize uncommon and rare vascular disorders encountered in the vascular laboratory
  • Identify areas of knowledge deficit to improve preparation for the ARDMS Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) examination

Intended Audience

This program is designed for cardiologists, vascular medicine specialists, vascular surgeons, vascular technologists, vascular and general sonographers, radiologists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
