NAVIX’s Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation Preceptorship focuses on the interpretation of vascular studies and case analysis of carotid duplex ultrasound, transcranial Doppler, peripheral arterial physiologic testing, peripheral arterial duplex ultrasound, venous duplex ultrasound and visceral vascular duplex ultrasound. Participants gain interpretation experience for up to 250 vascular ultrasound examinations presenting with diverse pathologies seen in a dedicated noninvasive vascular diagnostic laboratory.

Many fellowships programs and group practices have chosen NAVIX’s Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation Preceptorship to provide their physicians with the didactic instruction, hands-on interpretation, and preparation they need for reading vascular cases and obtaining their RPVI credential.

All of NAVIX’s Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation Preceptorship Programs provide the required 100 cases to meet APCA’s simulated case requirements.


Physicians, residents or fellows who are interested in the preparation and interpretation of non-invasive vascular studies.

Our Satisfied Clients

I did want to take the time to specifically credit Dr. Rodriguez-Wong for doing such an amazing job in teaching in this course. She is a wonderful asset to your program as she is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the subject matter and takes the time to provide excellent didactic lectures. I will definitely recommend this course to other fellows and colleagues that are interested in learning vascular ultrasound and taking the RPVI boards in the future.

Dr. Amrish Malhi

Interventional Cardiology Fellow, Lenox Hill Hospital

NAVIX's Vascular Ultrasound Interpretation course was amazing! The sessions were very well structured and Tish did a great job delivering the required knowledge across a group of physicians with different interests and backgrounds. I feel much more comfortable and confident with taking the RPVI exam as well as interpreting vascular studies in my clinical practice. I would highly recommend this course for any physician with interest in vascular ultrasound.
Ahmed S Ahmed, MD

Cardiology Fellow, Hershey Medical Center

Tish is a spectacular teacher and has great integrity that she combines with her passion for the art and science of ultrasound technology. Taking a course from her felt like taking a golf lesson from Jack Nicklaus.

Dr. Bruce Ruben

I really appreciated the clarity of the instructor. The didactic portion was excellent and I would definitely recommend this course.

Dr. Ramesh Gowda

Director of Endovascular Interventions, Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital

Best course! I don’t think I have ever had a more dedicated teacher than Angela. Her encyclopedic knowledge of vascular ultrasound and passion greatly impacted my learning.
