Abstract

The main goal of the present document is to provide a set of practical recommendations for ultrasound imagers who are interested in artery diseases or for physicians who intend to undertake vascular procedures. This is the first part of the work. It is dedicated to general principles of ultrasonography, cervicoencephalic, subclavian, aortoiliac and lower extremity arteries, abdominal aorta, and popliteal aneurysms. It also discusses miscellaneous items such as medial arterial calcinosis, arterial embolism, arteritis, arterial stents and bypasses, false aneurysms, aortic dissection, popliteal entrapment syndrome, and iliac endofibrosis.

Keywords: recommendations; ultrasound; Doppler; cervicoencephalic arteries; subclavian artery; abdominal arteries; lower extremity arteries; abdominal aorta aneurysm; popliteal aneurysm; medial arterial calcinosis; arteritis; stent; bypass; false aneurysm; dissection; popliteal entrapment; iliac endofibrosis
