SONO 246 - Vascular Sonography I
A broad overview of the fundamental theory and skills that are utilized to evaluate vascular disease using noninvasive techniques. Instrumentation, vascular anatomy, physiology, pathology, and physical principles and therapy are emphasized. Testing procedures in areas of cerebrovascular, peripheral arterial, and venous testing are included in this course. PREREQUISITE(S): SONO 204 or consent of program coordinator. COREQUISITE(S): SONO 262 or consent of program coordinator. Two hours lecture, two hours laboratory each week. Formerly MS 216.
3 semester hours
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Recognize and identify the sonographic appearance of normal vascular anatomic structures, including anatomic variants and normal Doppler patterns.
- Recognize and identify the sonographic appearance of normal embryonic, and vascular anatomic structures:
a. Sectional anatomy
b. Pertinent measurement techniques
c. Doppler applications
- Recognize, identify, and appropriately document the sonographic appearance of vascular disease processes, pathology, and pathophysiology:
a. History and physical examination
b. Related imaging, laboratory, and functional testing procedures
c. Differential diagnosis
d. Role of ultrasound in patient management
- Identify abnormal sonographic patterns: Iatrogenic, Degenerative, Inflammatory, Traumatic, Neoplastic, Infectious, Obstructive, Congenital, Metabolic, Immunologic, and Doppler applications.
- Describe the current treatment options for patients with cerebrovascular and peripheral venous disease.
