We are pleased to present sonography guru Robert DeJong, RDMS, RDCS, RVT
for a discussion on how to optimize color Doppler parameters for a more diagnostic study.
To create the most diagnostic images, Sonographers must have a thorough understanding of how to manipulate the color Doppler controls. Participants at this event will gain an appreciation of how various controls affect the color Doppler image. Topics such as angle correction and how to properly set the angle correction cursor will be addressed. In addition, some interesting cases will be discussed, demonstrating how appropriate adjustments to color Doppler controls lead to a more accurate diagnosis. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- Discuss the interaction of color velocity scale, or PRF, and the color Doppler gain.
- List the major common controls that affect the color Doppler aspect of the image.
- Describe the effect of the cosine angle on the quality of the Doppler image.
