"The format is very user-friendly and interactive. I loved studying with this book. It made taking the boards a manageable goal to obtain. It helped me discover my weak areas so I could concentrate in those areas more."
Elizabeth Auten, RDMS

Full-Color Edition!
For registry candidates, technologists in training, cross-training sonographers, clinical personnel, and RPVI candidates, here is the completely revised, updated 5th edition of the best and most trusted vascular technology review text available—now, for the first time, in full color. Written and peer-reviewed by nationally renowned authors and vascular experts, it remains a silver-bullet review of everything a registry candidate needs to know to pass the ARDMS specialty exam in Vascular Technology and the APCA's exam in Physicians' Vascular Interpretation. Also used in labs and diagnostic ultrasound programs across the country, it is perhaps the most widely read vascular reference in print. This new edition includes hundreds of anatomic illustrations and sonographic images, photo-documented physiologic exam techniques, 120 self-assessment case studies, and an integral application for 15 SDMS-approved CME credits. RVT, RPVI, and RVS candidates and DMS students can combine this Step 1 review text with Davies’ Step 2 mock exam Vascular Technology Review for powerful Ultrasound Education & Test Preparation.

If you are studying for both the RVT and SPI exams and are looking for review texts and mock exams in vascular technology and ultrasound physics, we have our Vascular Technology and Ultrasound Physics SPI Bundle. You can save $20! Ready to score? With this proven review, you can. 15 hours of SDMS-approved CME credit! 500+ illustrations (most in color). 464 pp.

This title is also available in our RPVI Study Bundle for the APCA Physicians' Vascular Interpretation Exam. Our biggest bundle at the highest discount for experienced physician interpreters!
