    Course Description
    Ultrasound (US) is an invaluable means to understand vascular diseases found across all regions of the human body, from cerebral vessels and limb vasculature to arteries and veins in the abdomen and pelvis. The cost-effectiveness, noninvasiveness, safety, and easily repeatability of vascular US (VUS) have placed it in the forefront of all diagnostic and risk-management imaging techniques available to clinicians. In particular, VUS enables tissue description and the assessment of physiologic processes through the real-time evaluation of vascular anatomy and blood flow. The ready availability and ease of use has made VUS a practical technology for most community healthcare facilities. This review explores the core principles, basic equipment, and advanced US features essential to image collection and interpretation in vascular diseases.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading this article, the participant should be able to:

    • Explain the basic principles and instruments used in the performance of vascular sonography.
    • Discuss the advanced imaging features and techniques and their appropriate settings for application.
    • Review the use of Doppler imaging and the essential elements required for interpreting vascular ultrasound data.
