Gulfcoast Introduction to Abdominal Doppler Ultrasound 2020


Introduction to Abdominal Doppler Ultrasound Online Course is designed to provide an introduction to and comprehensive review of Abdominal Doppler sonography and a strong foundation to perform and/or interpret Abdominal Doppler ultrasound examinations. The participant will identify the essentials for establishing scan protocols, and experienced faculty will guide you through abdominal anatomy and Doppler/Color Flow characteristics. Enrollment is valid for 12 months (365 days) and begins the moment the participant is enrolled. Extend your online course access another 3 months with the addition of an onsite hands-on workshop or registration for a regularly scheduled GCUS scan workshop.


– State the Doppler Principle and list the factors associated with the Doppler equation.
– Demonstrate various scan techniques for accurate interrogation of blood flow.
– Identify commonly seen Doppler/color flow imaging artifacts.
– List system controls utilized to optimize the Doppler/Color flow acquisition.
– State protocols and diagnostic criteria to evaluate abdominal aortic aneurysm and dissection and endovascular grafts.
– Define the term endoleak and list the five different types.
– Identify key sonographic findings in patients with normal and abnormal endovascular aortic grafts.
– Outline protocols for evaluating renal artery stenosis using direct and indirect Doppler/Color Flow imaging methods.
– Identify normal and abnormal imaging and flow characteristics associated with renal, mesenteric, and liver Doppler applications.
– Apply diagnostic criteria for evaluation of renal artery stenosis, mesenteric ischemia, portal hypertension, portal vein thrombosis, and Budd Chiari syndrome.
– Perform imaging of the normal transplant organ and recognize common abnormal findings indicating possible transplant compromise.
– Identify Doppler ultrasound findings in the normal transplant organ and state the implications of commonly seen abnormal findings.
