Our Hands-On PVD Course  
Learn our systematic review methodology for peripheral vascular CTA in this 20 hour course. Your training will include 6 hours of online didactic lectures that can be completed at your own pace before coming to the course, minimizing your time out of the clinic. Travel to one of our training sites in NYC, SF or Houston for an 8-hour hands-on workstation training session. During this onsite session you will review a wide variety of peripheral vascular pathology as well as observe live case acquisition. Following your hands-on training, you can complete as many as 50 additional cases using our specialized interactive training software.

In total, you will review in excess of 100 cases of carotid (25), Abdominal (20) Pre and Post EVAR (10) Renals and Mesenterics (10) and Run-off (45). This program is designed to exceed the standards for peripheral vascular CTA competency that will be issued by the ACC.
