Explore Non-invasive Vascular Testing

A Comprehensive Review of Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation and Registry Preparation — developed in partnership with the Society for Vascular Medicine — spans 30+ lectures that will expose you to all aspects of non-invasive testing. Abundant case study materials and over 100 registry-type exam questions will help those who work within the non-invasive vascular laboratory to prepare for the RPVI examination. It’s a continuing medical education program that provides valuable insight on:

• Imaging techniques (B-mode, color and spectral Doppler, physiological testing)

• Various testing protocols and diagnostic criteria

• A broad range of vascular pathology, both common and rare

• Fundamentals of vascular physics

• Quality improvement and patient safety

• And more…
