• Could ultrasound be the next portable stroke detection device?

    The lecture is for sonographers, sonographers-in-training, and other health professionals with an interest in ultrasonography for portable stroke diagnosis.

    At the conclusion of this lecture, the audience should have better understanding of:
    - Ultrasonography for prehospital large vessel occlusi...

  • Giant Cell Arteritis

  • Transabdominal approach for ovarian vein incompetence

  • Patent Foramen Ovale detection using TCD

  • Can sonographers reliably scan perforator veins

    Diagnostic Ultrasound (DU) plays an integral role in the assessment and mapping of Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)(Neglen & Raju, 1992; Zygmunt, 2014) and in particular the assessment and documentation of perforator veins.(Eidson Iii & Bush, 2010). Also evident is a paucity of re...

  • Transcranial Colour Duplex: Venous alterations post Cerebral AVM resection

    New Transcranial Colour Duplex Findings Support Significant Venous Alterations Following Cerebral Arteriovenoous Malformation Resection

  • Ultrasound findings after modern venous interventions

    Duplex ultrasound is ideally suited as a non - invasive method to evaluate the outcome of treatments for chronic venous disease as it provides both anatomical and haemodynamic information about the treated veins.
    In this session I will present information about some of the recent or modern veno...

  • AAA Screening

    The value of Aortic Anuerysm Screening with abdominal ultrasound is well established. There are however important questions that remain for screening programmes to remain cost effective, accessible, affordable and equitable. Developing strategies to make this possible will be presented and the im...

  • Let's get education on EVAR surveillance

    This presentation aims to provide an overview of abdominal aortic aneurysms, Endovascular Aortic Repair (EVAR) numbers and configurations, devices, endoleak and ultrasound assessment including cases.

  • Small infrarenal Aortic size - what does this imply?

    While a relationship between large infrarenal aortic diameter and both cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevalence and all-cause mortality has been previously suggested, there is also evidence that small aortic size may also be associated with increased CVD risk. We examined a total of 4882 elderly (...

  • Contrast and EVAR

    The use of contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) to quantify the presence or absence of an endovascular leak using ultrasound.

  • Back to basics: the dreaded dialysis AV fistula scan

    Using contrast for imaging purposes on patients with renal failure is not particularly ideal; fortunately, Duplex Ultrasound is generally a readily available imaging modality ideally suited for these patients as it provides a non-invasive, contrast and radiation free method for assessing the viab...

  • Refinements in abdominal aortic aneurysm screening; a new screening tool

    Refinements in abdominal aortic aneurysm screening; a new screening tool and incorporation of body surface area correction

  • Vascular curiousities in the head and neck region

    The head and neck represents the most complex anatomical region with contributions from virtually all body systems. For this reason, the pathology of the head and neck tends to be correspondingly complex and wide-ranging. In this presentation, we will review numerous vascular pathologies that can...

  • Qualification of blood flow in 3D Ultrasound - Vascular applications

    Vascular ultrasound has an increasing role to play in the evaluation of numerous conditions such as peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Ultrasound imaging (b-mode and elastography) has been used for evaluation of vascular walls such as for deep venous thrombus (DVT) but there is also a need for fl...

    Transcranial Doppler diagnosis of elevated microvascular resistance following endovascular clot retrieval in acute ischaemic stroke

  • What's new in venous, has anything changed?

    Venous scanning has come to have a central place in the diagnosis, management and follow up of venous disease. While venous is not always the most favoured task for sonographers their contribution to the new developments in venous work is impressive.
    Examples will be given to illustrate this. Ch...

  • Con or common sense? A review of asymptomatic carotid artery screening

    Stroke is the second highest cause of death and third leading cause of disability worldwide. Ischaemic strokes are caused by embolism and cerebrovascular disease, the latter of which can be detected at high rates of sensitivity and specificity with duplex ultrasound.
    Screening for asymptomatic c...
