ACP Online Ultrasound Courses

The Australasian College of Phlebology has developed comprehensive online ultrasound training courses. Enrolled candidates will progress through two levels of advancing course difficulty from the Certificate to Diploma. The courses are taught by expert instructor(s) and emphasis is placed on the clinical application of ultrasound technology in phlebology applications. Strong emphasis is placed on the interaction between students and instructor(s) through the on-line classroom interface where students will find study guides, study materials, image libraries and challenging problems posted in interactive forums.

Certificate of Ultrasound in Phlebology (C.U.P): Fundamentals and technology of duplex imaging

Course Content:

Basic acoustic physics, sound waves, interaction of ultrasound with tissue, transmission, reflection, attenuation,  transducers, ultrasound pulse formation, phased array technology, beam sweeping, beam steering, emission to display process, scanlines, focusing, gain compensation, axial, lateral resolution, slice thickness, temporal resolution and frame rate, 2D system controls, effective use of transducers, 2D artifacts, hemodynamics, Poiseuille’s law, Bernoulli principals, resistance, pressure, volume flow, basic Doppler principles, color Doppler, flow directionality, Doppler system controls, and spectral Doppler interpretation.

Note: access to duplex ultrasound and some clinical hands-on experience with duplex ultrasound is assumed

The Certificate of Ultrasound in Phlebology ( C.U.P.) is in line with the ACP Training requirements to achieve procedural credentialing in Endovenous laser and Radiofrequency.

Participants who complete the course will be awarded a Certificate of Ultrasound in Phlebology (C.U.P.)
