340.730.01 ASSESSMENT OF CLINICAL CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
- Edgar R. Miller
Familiarizes students with techniques used to detect and quantify the presence of clinical cardiovascular disease. Initially, students tour the hospital, medical records department, angiography, echocardiography, and vascular laboratories. Students as a group observe radiographic (CT and MRI) imaging of atherosclerosis and review gross and histological specimens of atherosclerosis in the pathology laboratory. In addition, each student makes direct observations of any one imaging technique including cardiac of carotid echocardiography, coronary of peripheral angiography, coronary calcium scores using EBCT or Helical CT, or clinical assessment of blood pressure and ankle/brachial index.
Identify the techniques used to detect and quantify the presence of clinical and cardiovascular disease. This includes identification of atherosclerosis in vessels in cadavers and on pathology slides, and n by radiographic techniques including carotid echocardiography, coronary calcium scores using EBCT or Helical CT. Finally, students will be able to differentiate modalities for renal replacement and vascular access options, and be able to make clinical assessment of blood pressure and ankle/brachial index.
