Lower Extremity Venous Insufficiency – Duplex Ultrasound to the Rescue!

May 11, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Venous Insufficiency

ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is delighted to present Donna Kelly, RVT, RPhS, RDMS, Technical Director at Middlesex Surgical Associates, for an educational session on Lower Extremity Venous Insufficiency.

Course Description:

Evaluation of the lower extremities is one of the most frequently requested sonographic studies during this global pandemic. To provide the best diagnostic exams, Sonographers need to be well-versed in the specifics of conditions that affect the lower extremities, such as venous insufficiency. During this event, we will analyze the importance of the patient’s clinical presentation and how it will help determine the direction of the sonographic exam. We will also review general venous anatomy and venous hemodynamics, and finally, learn the fundamentals of lower extremity venous duplex for venous insufficiency.
