Aim of the Course
Learn how to conduct an ultrasound examination of the carotid and vertebral arteries.
Course Description
At the end of this course, you will have acquired enough knowledge to perform and interpret a normal ultrasound examination of the carotid and vertebral arteries. You will also be able to use the diagnostic criteria for grading carotid artery stenosis and characterise atherosclerotic plaques.
This course is accredited by the EACCME (European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) to provide CME credits. This means learners may earn up to 9 European CME credits. Learners from the USA may convert European CME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA).
This course is currently available at the 50% off sale price of £149.99. (Full course price is £299.99.)
