About the session

Due to the demand for sonographers to train in DVTs and carotids regionally, we would like to encourage sonographers to take an interest in this study day. Open to sonographers interested in vascular ultrasound, particularly DVTs and carotid scanning, as well as registrars wanting to learn DVT scanning. The event will consist of introductory lectures followed by two demonstration sessions featuring live scanning of volunteers.
