Presented by Robert J. Daigle, BA, RVT, RVS, FSVU, FSDMS.
This enduring material is designed to provide an introduction for the evaluation of lower extremity arterial testing methods including lower arterial anatomy/physiology, arterial hemodynamics and disease processes that relate to clinical symptoms.
A full description and explanation of diagnostic test methods including ABI, segmental pressures, Doppler waveform analysis, pulse volume recordings and exercise stress testing. Color duplex imaging indications, techniques and criteria are presented in a clear and concise manner.
Upon completion of this video activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:
1. List arterial anatomy of the lower extremity
2. Apply routine scan protocols for performing lower extremity arterial indirect and duplex/color examinations
3. Cite normal and abnormal waveform characteristics for identifying arterial disease
4. List diagnostic criteria associated with indirect and duplex/color imaging of lower extremity arterial evaluation
5. Demonstrate PVR, segmental pressure and plethysmography measurements
