Professional Performance Videos



“We purchased a set of videos from SVU for all of the modalities that we perform in our laboratory a few years ago. The one for visceral vascular was very good. It went over indications, windows, diagnostic criteria and the sonographer narrating the exam described the study as she was doing it, so you could watch the transducer movements. It’s been helpful having it on hand for newer staff members and as refresher when we are slow in the lab. The mesenteric and renal artery sections are very good.”

Sponsored in part by GE Healthcare, in conjunction with SVU—The VOICE for the Vascular Ultrasound Profession since 1977.

These videos are based in part on SVU’s Professional Performance Guidelines for vascular ultrasound studies. They extend and refine those general Guidelines, which reflect behavior and performance levels expected in clinical practice, to better reflect the day-to-day practice of vascular technology.

The SVU Vascular Technology Professional Performance Guidelines represent the minimal essential elements of performance as recommended by SVU. They are not designed to replace internally generated, laboratory specific protocols, but to serve as a basis for developing or updating the procedure(s) described.

Each Guideline addresses the following areas:

  • Purpose
  • Common indications
  • Contraindications and limitations
  • Patient communication
  • Patient assessment and physical examination
  • Examination guidelines
  • Review of the diagnostic exam findings
  • Presentation of exam findings
  • Exam time recommendations
  • Continuing professional education
  • And more!
