Professionals in the sonography field & professionals in the hemodialysis field
Professionals rendering services to patients who have common carotid disease or peripheral vascular disease will benefit from this course. When a health care professional has knowledge when to render the diagnostic exams through signs and symptoms and understand the methodology when performing examinations will benefit from this conference.

Vascular Series Utilizing Non-Invasive Techniques in the Modality Ultrasound w/ Scanning Opportunity 2015, 8 Plus CMEs
This lecturer will actively identify, describe, & evaluate common carotids, upper and venous & arterial systems using non-invasive techniques in the modality ultrasound. Describe appropriate indications, identify anatomy, describe patient preparation, describe methodology, & evaluate a live scan from a volunteer are some highlights for this CME conference. Participants will have, at minimum, a basic understanding how to perform peripheral vascular exams. Faculty is in the sonography business and do perform diagnostic imaging.
