This issue contains an update from the Society for Vascular Ultrasound leadership team, a book review focusing on ultrasound physics and instrumentation, outcomes following an exercise program and changes in cerebral blood flow, a comparative study of the right and left carotid arteries in patients with diabetes and hypertension, an illustration of a portal vein collateral with the diagnosis of portal vein hypertension, and a report of a pre-occlusive stenosis involving the left common carotid artery.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Cincinnati and Society for Vascular UltrasoundThe University of Cincinnati is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The University of Cincinnati designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Faculty members are required to inform the audience when they are discussing off-label, unapproved uses of devices and drugs. Physicians should consult full prescribing information before using any product mentioned during this educational activity.
The University of Cincinnati is committed to resolving all conflicts of interest issues that could arise as a result of prospective faculty members' significant relationships with drug or device manufacturer(s). The University of Cincinnati is committed to retaining only those speakers with financial interests that can be reconciled with the goals and educational integrity of the CME activity.
The opinions expressed during the live activity are those of the faculty and do not necessarily represent the views of the University of Cincinnati. The information is presented for the purpose of advancing the attendees' professional development.
After reading and studying the papers used for CME in the September 2022 Issue of the Journal for Vascular Ultrasound, participants will be able to:
1. State the acoustic window used to image the middle cerebral artery.
2. List the formulas used to calculate the mean flow velocity and pulsatility index.
3. State the depth range use to acquire a Doppler signal from the middle cerebral artery.
4. List the risk markers of atherosclerosis and cerebrovascular disease.
5. Describe how to measure the intimal medial thickness in the carotid artery.
6. Explain why shear stress affects the left internal carotid artery more than the right internal carotid artery.
7. State the gold standard for diagnosing a patent foremen ovale.
8. List factors contributing to a falsely elevated ankle brachial index.
9. Compare the peak systolic velocities before and after transcarotid artery revascularization.
10. Explain the normal direction of blood flow in the portal vein.
11. State the modality used to evaluate the portal vein collateral.
12. Describe hepatofugal flow.
13. Explain the collateral flow pattern to the internal carotid artery from the external carotid artery with a common carotid high-grade stenosis.
14. Explain why the peak systolic velocity and pressure decreases distal to a high-grade stenosis.
15. List the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound consensus criteria for a hemodynamically significant carotid artery stenosis.
Physician, Vascular Technologists and Sonographer members of SVU should find participating in this educational activity valuable
