This issue contains information on the role of various imaging modalities in detecting peripheral arterial disease, transcranial Doppler monitoring in patients undergoing carotid artery revascularization, various sonographic waveform patterns encountered when interpreting a carotid duplex examination, utilizing transcranial Doppler ultrasound pre and post middle cerebral artery stent placement, a case of a muscle strain injury that resulted in a pseudoaneurysm, and traumatic superficial temporal artery pseudoaneurysm treated with thrombin injection.

After reading and studying the papers used for CME in the Fall 2021 Issue of the Journal for Vascular Ultrasound, participants will be able to:
1. List the symptoms of peripheral arterial disease
2. List the contraindications of computed tomography
3. Define peak systolic ratio
4. State the modality used to analyze embolic events in the cerebral vessels
5. State the procedure that demonstrates high intensity signals
6. List the limitations of distal protection devices
7. Describe a pulsus bisferiens waveform pattern
8. Explain the characteristics of a pulsed Doppler waveform seen in a patient with an intra-aortic balloon pump
9. Describe the waveform characteristics of a carotid artery-internal jugular fistula
10. List the transducer frequency used when performing a transcranial Doppler examination
11. Describe the symptoms of a middle cerebral artery stroke
12. List the vessel commonly associated with intracranial atherosclerosis and ischemic stroke
13. State the sonographic features of a pseudoaneurysm
14. Describe the typical development of a pseudoaneurysm
15. Describe the pulsed Doppler waveform pattern seen in the neck of a pseudoaneurysm
