About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME teaching activity provides a detailed review of the complex anatomy and physiology of the peripheral venous system while highlighting the minimally invasive procedures used to treat the multitude of venous disorders. Expert faculty will share their knowledge of scanning techniques, pearls, pitfalls and challenges associated with imaging the venous system and documenting hemodynamic dysfunction. In addition to diagnostic duplex ultrasound and color flow mapping techniques, their role in treatment will be included in thorough reviews of commonly performed interventions such as venous ablation, sclerotherapy and thrombolytic therapy.
Target Audience
This CME teaching activity is primarily intended for interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, cardiologists and other physicians who perform minimally invasive venous procedures and interpret or rely on venous ultrasound studies in their practice.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Discuss the clinical indications and applications of venous ultrasound.
  • Describe the indications and complications of vena cave filters.
  • Compare the different venous ablative therapies.
  • Describe venous insufficiency treatment and post procedure management options.
  • Recognize sonographic features of successful and failed bypass graft and stent.
