Back to IR Basics: Peripheral Interventions - Evaluation and Management
This course will review the technical aspects of PAD interventions and improve the understanding of the medical management of peripheral arterial disease. This program is designed to meet the educational needs of interventional radiologist, IRs in-training, nurses, techs and other physicians at all levels with special interest in peripheral arterial interventions.
The presentations in the on-demand activity were originally presented at the SIR 2017 Fellows Spring Practicum and includes the following:
Office Evaluation of Leg Pain
Risk Factor Modification/Medical Management of PAD
Vascular Lab Primer
Pharmacology of PAD
CTO Techniques, Alternative Access
After purchasing access to this educational activity, you will be directed to the SIR Learning Center to participate in the activity and obtain your certificate. To receive CME credit for this enduring activity, participants must watch the video and score 70% or better on the post-activity exam. Participants will have three opportunities to score 70% or better.
Upon completion of this on-demand activity, participants should be able to:
Describe the basic elements that comprise the evaluation and management of PAD.
Recognize the important signs and symptoms and clinical values associated with the management of PAD.
Distinguish the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease from other pathologies with similar symptoms.
