Accept nothing but the best by choosing to attend the 2019 SVU Annual Conference. Over three days, you will have the chance to explore some of the most advanced cases in the vascular field.

At the completion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Describe recent developments in carotid artery intervention and revascularization.
  • Understand the relative value and differences among various imaging modalities for the assessment of carotid plaque and their impact on stroke risk.
  • Identify pathologies other than atherosclerosis encountered during the carotid duplex examination
  • Utilize various sonographic windows to optimize visualization and interrogation of the abdominal vasculature.
  • Understand the appropriate indications for renal artery stenosis evaluation.
  • Describe differences in technique and interpretation in patients referred for mesenteric evaluation for stenosis versus median arcuate ligament syndrome.
  • Understand the importance of and implement new techniques for the comprehensive evaluation of the patient who presets with “diabetic foot” complications.
  • Be familiar with the various emerging and established endovascular and open revascularization techniques performed in the vascular surgery practice today.
  • Be able to recognize the clinical and sonographic signs that should prompt evaluation of the iliac venous system in patients who present with chronic venous insufficiency.
  • Adjust protocols in order to more efficiently evaluate the patient chronic venous insufficiency without sacrificing quality.
  • Describe cutting edge treatments valuable to address superficial reflux in the presence of DVT and/or deep venous insufficiency
  • Understanding velocity criteria and application to various pathologies.
  • Be able to recognize the correlation between the clinical presentation and diagnostic findings.
  • Will be able to understand and relate changes in waveforms to clinical decision making.
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of critical limb ischemia and describe diagnostic and treatment pathways.
  • Be able to recognize the correlation between the clinical presentation and diagnostic findings.
  • Discuss current important aspects of practice management for the vascular ultrasound professional
