Dr. Fernanda Costa Sampaio Silva, Universidade Federal da Bahia, Programa de pós-graduação em Medicina e Saúde, Master of Science, Brazilian Board Certified Vascular Surgeon and Vascular Sonographer, DMS 

Attendees of this session will learn about how to understand the different types of revascularizations including angioplasty, stents and bypass. Scanning the protocol for graft surveillance and criteria for graft stenosis will be covered. In addition, attendees will learn about how to identify graft failure/occlusion, the role of ABI and flow pattern and the role of the sonographer in limb salvage.

Ultrasound Assessment of the Extracranial Carotid Arteries
Kaylana Parente, DMS, RVT, Ultrasound Technologist, Hamilton Health Sciences - Hamilton General Hospital

Kaylana Parente graduated from rom McMaster University with a degree in Medical Radiation Sciences specialized in Ultrasound. She has worked as an ultrasound technologist since that time at the Hamilton General Hospital, a large tertiary teaching hospital and neuro-vascular site. Kaylana also gained vascular experience by working 1-2 days/week in sites dedicated outpatient vascular lab where she performed specialized vascular and neurological ultrasound exams. Kaylana earned her love of teaching by being the Clinical Education Leader for Mohawk-McMaster Ultrasound students. She later graduated in 2021 with a Masters of Health Management degree from McMaster University. Attendees of this session will get an overview of extracranial carotid artery anatomy, extracranial carotid artery ultrasound protocol, and plaque characterization. An evaluation of a stenosis within carotid artery system, post-operative ultrasound evaluation of carotid arteries (endarterectomy and stents) and case review examples will also be covered in detail.
