This Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) - Lower Extremity: Core Clinical Module focuses on the sonographic evaluation of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT), including both first-time and recurrent DVTs. Course lessons cover normal lower extremity vasculature, sonographic anatomy, and scanning technique. Multiple DVT ultrasound protocols (ranging from point-of-care to comprehensive whole-leg ultrasound examination) are discussed. Multiple real-patient DVT case studies and alternative conditions included in the differential diagnosis of DVT (e.g., Baker's cyst) are presented.
