Vascular Ultrasound Training Course at Advanced Health Education Center

AHECís continuing medical education (CME) Vascular Ultrasound classes are comprehensive courses designed to train clinicians in ultrasound procedures for diagnosing vascular conditions, obtain your training at Advanced Health Education Center (AHEC) in Houston, Texas. AHEC offers courses that train physicians, sonographers, and other medical professionals to skillfully perform venous ultrasound for diagnostic testing.

Why choose a Vascular Ultrasound Course??

Vascular ultrasound has evolved from the grainy, black, and white, two-dimensional images. What was once used as a screening tool is now utilized for the detection of DVT and venous reflux. Thanks to advancements in Doppler technology and color imaging, venous ultrasound is now the modality of choice for early detection of many vascular conditions. Those conditions include:

  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Venous disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

It is critical for healthcare providers to continuously improve their skills and enhance their knowledge for the betterment of patient care. Therefore, a proper vascular ultrasound CME course is essential for clinicians who treat vascular patients.

What is Covered in Our Vascular Ultrasound Training?

At AHEC, our vascular ultrasound CME training begins with our qualified instructors presenting a thorough overview of the anatomy and hemodynamics of the vascular system. They will thoroughly address the various pathological conditions that can present during venous ultrasounds and will present case studies that show the variations that may be present in a venous ultrasound, such as cardiac output, dehydration, and infection.

During the laboratory portion of the course, participants will use our state-of-the-art equipment to perfect their venous ultrasound protocol. Our low student-to-instructor ratio allows everyone time to perfect their protocol under the guidance of the instructor, and our instructors are available for questions after the course has ended.
