Aim of the Course
Learn how to conduct an ultrasound examination of the superficial and deep veins of the lower limbs.
Course Description
At the end of this course, you will have acquired enough knowledge to perform an ultrasound examination of the deep and superficial veins. You will also be aware of the main ultrasound criteria to diagnose the main venous diseases (deep vein thrombosis, superficial thrombosis, varicose veins and venous reflux).
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 12 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 £299.99. (Full course price is £599.99.)
