Learning Outcomes and Modules  

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:

  • Discuss the relative strengths of key imaging modalities (ultrasound, CT, MRI, angiography) and appropriately apply each in the diagnosis of vascular disease.
  • Adapt the latest best practices to optimize the quality of vascular imaging for each modality in their own practices.
  • Recognize manifestations of traumatic and nontraumatic vascular injury, atherosclerotic disease, chronic thromboembolism, mesenteric ischemia, vasculitis, and congenital vascular abnormalities.
  • Apply vascular imaging for surgical and interventional planning, including TAVR, prostatic embolization, surgical free flaps, and aortic aneurysm.
  • Describe the latest imaging innovations (including artificial intelligence, spectral CT, 4D flow, and contrast enhanced ultrasound) and utilize each to further improve diagnosis of vascular disease.
