AIUM regional course, Doppler Imaging 2004: From Basic Applications to New Frontiers

July 21, 2004

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) will host Doppler Imaging 2004: From Basic Applications to New Frontiers, led by course director Deborah Rubens, MD, October 16-17, 2004, at the Le Centre Sheraton, Montréal, Canada. Take advantage of early registration (prior to August 13, 2004) and SAVE.

Through lecture, discussion, case presentations, and demonstrations, this course will provide a comprehensive understanding of Doppler ultrasound techniques and applications throughout the vascular system. After completing this course, participants will be able to apply Doppler ultrasound principles in evaluation of peripheral vessels, abdominal organs, and pelvic pathology.

Register online at www.aium.org for this course, which is intended to update physicians and sonographers in Doppler ultrasound techniques, improving their scanning skills and diagnostic capabilities. Participants will hear nationally recognized experts discuss their techniques and approaches, tricks, and tips, while earning up to 12.5 category 1 AMA PRA continuing medical education (CME) credits.

Key topics include

  • Doppler Artifacts and Pitfalls
  • Carotid Imaging: The Basics
  • Carotid Imaging: Advanced Diagnostics
  • Arterial Doppler Assessment of the Extremities
  • Hemodialysis Grafts and Fistulae: Pre- and Postoperative Assessment
  • Doppler Ultrasound Evaluation of the Kidneys
  • Abdominal Aorta: Including Assessment of Stent Grafts and Mesenteric Ischemia
  • Acute Scrotal Doppler: Torsion and Beyond
  • Doppler Imaging of Uterine Abnormalities

    The complete faculty and course list is available online at www.aium.org.
