Presented by: John Egan III, MD FCCP DAABIP, Gustavo Cumbo Nacheli, MD FCCP DAABIP Credits: 1 Learn More

Society for Advanced Bronchoscopy (SAB) Archived Presentation January 2019

Often times first step on workup for intrathoracic abnormalities involve transthoracic sample acquisition. Understanding correct EBUS application and patient section are key to perform the correct procedure and expedites proper treatment.

At the conclusion of the webinar, the learner should have gained an enhanced understanding of intrathoracic lymph node anatomy, sampling techniques, and clinical usefulness of various endobronchial ultrasound guided diagnostic approaches; thereby improving patient outcomes.

Following the presentation questions from the audience were addressed in a moderated Q&A session.

Renal Artery Duplex Expanding The Envelope
Presented by: Patrick A. Washko, BSRT, RDMS, RVT, FSVU Credits: 1 Learn More

In today’s healthcare environment, working in a vascular laboratory is extremely demanding, requiring a multitude of critical skills and abilities from today’s sonographer. The renal artery duplex examination is often viewed as the single most difficult examination performed. This lecture will cover a detailed description of the examination from patient preparation, to stenosis criteria and a broad array of tips and tricks in both a variety of normal and pathological settings. Sonography is very dependent on strong visual and motor skills along with critical thinking abilities.

This presentation is designed to help the sonographers, physicians and other imaging professionals formulate a plan to deal with difficult clinical presentations:

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this webinar one should be able to:

  • Understand the common indications for performing the renal artery duplex examination.
  • Note the importance of knobology and image optimization while insonating the renal arterial and venous system.
  • Identify the importance of direct and indirect renal artery assessment.
  • Discuss how to obtain a clinically diagnostic renal artery duplex examination.
