Ultrasound Evaluation of the Upper Extremity Venous System- DVD-video (2016)

Presented by Robert J. Daigle, BA, RVT, FSVU, FSDMS


This enduring material is designed to provide an introduction to upper extremity venous anatomy and duplex/color flow imaging. The presentation also contains video case studies.


Sonographers physicians and other medical professional performing and/or interpreting vascular ultrasound. Participants may include, but are not limited to, those working in Radiology, Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Primary Care, Critical Care, General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, and Emergency medicine.


Upon completion of this enduring material , you should be able to accomplish the following:

1. Evaluate and identify upper extremity venous anatomy

2. State normal and abnormal venous Doppler characteristics

3. Implement routine scan protocols for performing an upper extremity venous evaluation

4. Recognize normal vs. abnormal venous Doppler characteristics

5. Case presentations demonstrating typical(but often misleading) collateral venous pathways are shown.

6. Recognize Paget-Schroetter syndrome,

7. Discuss common diagnostic pitfalls.
