ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is excited to welcome back Dr. Robert J. Feezor, Medical Director of UF Health – Halifax Health, Heart, and Vascular Surgery for an enlightening session on the management of carotid artery disease.

Management of Carotid Atherosclerotic Disease often starts with evaluation using sonographic imaging. Once the degree of occlusion has been established, the need for medical and/or surgical treatment can be determined. This presentation will provide an understanding of the pathophysiology of carotid occlusive disease and the potential clinical implications of carotid stenosis. A discussion of the basic tenets of carotid management, including medical therapy, surgical endarterectomy, and carotid stenting, will be included. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit, provided one is present for the entire event)
