Vascular Ultrasound Training Course for Physicians and Other Medical Professionals

For comprehensive vascular interpretation courses that train medical professionals in proper duplex testing and sonography techniques for vascular conditions, look no further than Advanced Health Education Center (AHEC) in Houston, Texas. AHEC can provide the vascular ultrasound training you need to perform more skillful, accurate diagnostic testing of vascular conditions.

Why Vascular Ultrasound?

Vascular ultrasound has come a long way in recent years. Because its early incarnation was a grainy, black and white, two-dimensional image, vascular ultrasound was once thought of as a mere screening tool. Now, Doppler technology and color imaging make vascular ultrasound the modality of choice for early detection of many vascular conditions, including:

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

For that reason, physicians and other medical professionals must learn how to perform this procedure so that they can accurately diagnose patients.

What is Covered in Our Vascular Ultrasound Training Course?

In the vascular interpretation courses we offer at AHEC, our highly qualified physician instructors present a thorough overview of the anatomy and hemodynamics of the vascular system, as well as the various pathological conditions that can present during vascular ultrasounds.

Our courses also cover multiple variables that may be present in patients, such as cardiac output, dehydration and infection, which can all affect the vascular system in different ways and aggravate existing conditions. A number of case studies will be presented, which will ensure that participants can gain an exhaustive understanding of vascular conditions in a wide range of patients.

During the scan lab portion of the course, participants will use our state of the art equipment to perfect their vascular ultrasound protocol. We offer a low student-to-instructor ratio, which allows everyone time to demonstrate their skills and have their techniques verified by the instructors. In fact, our instructors are also available for participant questions long after the course has ended. This is just one factor that sets the vascular ultrasound training course at AHEC apart from other vascular interpretation courses.
