SVM in the Vascular Lab: Hot Topics in Vascular Testing

Saturday, June 17
8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This day-long program puts the spotlight on the non-invasive vascular laboratory. This program will be of interest to vascular medicine specialists, vascular technologists and sonographers, radiologists, cardiologists who practice cardiovascular ultrasound, and vascular surgeons as well as vascular trainees in vascular and imaging specialties. Sessions will review vascular testing protocols and interpretive pitfalls in all common testing areas and will also spotlight new and cutting edge techniques.

View the complete schedule.

The program faculty have been carefully selected for their expertise and teaching skills and represent a vibrant mix of SVM member faculty and colleagues from the vascular technology and vascular surgery communities with national renown.

View the learning objectives.
