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.
