This module provides the necessary knowledge to perform an ultrasound assessment of the lower limb deep venous and superficial venous systems for pathologies such as:
– Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
– Varicose vein/ superficial venous reflux (incompetence)
The module is composed of e-booklets and video lectures. The e-booklets provide a solid theoretical background of the venous anatomy, normal physiology, abnormal pathology, diagnostic criteria and step by step protocols to perform an assessment of the lower limb venous system. The video lectures reinforce the theoretical knowledge gained from the e-booklets and apply it to real-life cases demonstrating the presence or absence of venous disease.
