Vascular Interpretation & RPVI Registry Review 2021 (Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute) (Videos + Exam-mode Quiz)


Vascular Interpretation & RPVI Registry Review

A variety of learning components including: video lectures, scan demonstrations, interactive components/quizzes, and more to improve diagnostic accuracy.
All online courses cover the same topics as our comprehensive live courses.


Vascular Interpretation & RPVI Registry Review Online Course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the information needed to successfully pass the Physicians’ Vascular Interpretation (PVI) registry examination and to enhance vascular interpretation skills. The online activity is in a modular, interactive format and includes lectures, over 140 case presentations, and four mock examinations to simulate the certification exam experience. Enrollment is valid for 12 months (365 days) and begins the moment the participant is enrolled.
Additionally, the GCUS Registry Review PASS Guarantee offers you access to the online course version of your registry review program for an additional 90 days if you do not pass your registry exam after completing one of our review programs. Just send us a copy of your exam score (registry exam must be taken within six months of our review) and we’ll grant you a 90 day access extension to the online course version of the review.


Increase the participants’ knowledge and competence to perform/ interpret vascular ultrasound examinations and/or successfully take the RPVI certification exam.
Analyze Doppler/Color physics factors that affect optimal Doppler examinations and commonly seen Doppler/Color artifacts, which may affect diagnostic accuracy.
Recognize normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and Color Doppler findings seen with carotid, peripheral arterial, and venous disease.
Cite the role of indirect testing in the evaluation of lower extremity arterial disease.
Apply diagnostic criteria for evaluation of carotid, peripheral venous and arterial disease.
Interpret complex carotid and peripheral vascular case studies in an interactive interpretation session format.
Recognize normal/abnormal imaging, spectral Doppler and Color Doppler findings seen with Abdominal visceral (renal, mesenteric, and hepatic) evaluations.
Recognize ultrasound findings associated with aortic endograft leaks.
Differentiate normal and abnormal spectral Doppler characteristics associated with dialysis access graft evaluations.
Integrate the key diagnostic elements into a structured report.
Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques, and diagnostic criteria to improve diagnosis/treatment accuracy.

Physicians, nurse practitioners, PA’s, sonographers, or other medical professional involved with performing/interpreting vascular ultrasound examinations, and/or preparing to take their RPVI certification examination. Sonographers and other medical professionals may also attend to improve vascular ultrasound diagnostic skills. Physician participants may include (but is not limited to): radiology, internal medicine, primary care, vascular surgery, general surgery, neurology, and cardiology.
