Get Started

In this webinar, we will cover endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) and fenestrated-branched endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (F-BEVAR) for the treatment of aortic aneurysms. We will also explore possible complications of this treatment, highlighting endoleaks. Cases of how the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound improved images will be presented with a brief explanation describing how the “bubbles” work. Lastly, a dive into the use of ultrasound and contrast-enhanced ultrasound within the vascular surgery practice of the aortic field will be reviewed.

  • Introduce the optimal uses of ultrasound and contrast-enhanced ultrasound for aortic pathologies.
  • Discuss the importance and benefits of contrast-enhanced ultrasound compared to CT.
  • Review the limitations of contrast-enhanced ultrasound.
  • Review how contrast-enhanced ultrasound improves vascular practice on treatments of aortic aneurysm.

This program has been designed for sonographers, and other healthcare professionals involved in echocardiography.

This program has been submitted for approval of 0.5 hour of SDMS CME Credit Category AE by the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (SDMS).
