D. Eugene Strandness, Jr. Symposium
This symposium is designed for all health care providers with an interest in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease - vascular and general surgeons, cardiologists, vascular medicine specialists, radiologists, primary care providers, medical and surgical residents and fellows, nurses and vascular technologists. The program is ideal for physicians and vascular technologists/sonographers who require continuing medical education to maintain vascular laboratory accreditation or individual credentials.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- List and compare the various methods for noninvasive diagnosis of vascular disease in the major testing areas of cerebrovascular, venous, peripheral arterial, and visceral vascular
- Discuss the role of the vascular laboratory in vascular disease screening
- Understand the current status of catheter-directed thrombolysis for deep venous thrombosis
- Discuss the role of the vascular laboratory in the management of deep vein thrombosis
- Understand the vascular laboratory evaluation for chronic venous insufficiency
- Be familiar with current issues in vascular laboratory billing, credentialing, and accreditation
- Discuss the current status of endovascular treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysms and thoracic aortic disease
- Be familiar with the pre- and post-procedure evaluation of patients having abdominal aortic endografts
- Discuss the various approaches to imaging of the renal, visceral, and peripheral arteries
- Explain the role of duplex ultrasound for follow-up of arterial interventions and surveillance of bypass grafts
- Understand the current status of endovascular intervention for femoropopliteal disease
- Describe and analyze issues related to interpretation and reporting of vascular laboratory tests
- Discuss the endovascular approaches to occlusive disease of the extracranial carotid arteries and aortic arch branches
