Interesting, well introduced, well explained and complete lecture. Very nice to quickly remember everything you need to know in practice about DVT.

Not just for doctors or nurses

I really like the vascular portion of this system. I find it helpful. I am studying for my RVT for ultrasound and this helps a lot. I hope there will be more information as far as physics and data interpretation for ultrasound. I think radiology field has a lot to know and not just pertaining to doctors or nurses.
