Overview

Explore Non-invasive Vascular Testing

This online CME program — developed in partnership with the Society for Vascular Medicine — spans 30+ lectures that will expose you to all aspects of non-invasive testing. Abundant case study materials and over 100 registry-type exam questions will help those who work within the non-invasive vascular laboratory to prepare for the RPVI examination. It's a continuing medical education program that provides valuable insight on:

  • Imaging techniques (B-mode, color and spectral Doppler, physiological testing)
  • Various testing protocols and diagnostic criteria
  • A broad range of vascular pathology, both common and rare
  • Fundamentals of vascular physics
  • Quality improvement and patient safety
  • And more…
