The Ultrasound Physics/SPI and Vascular Technology Exam Prep package was designed for candidates preparing for the RVT credential and therefore needing to pass both the ARDMS Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) exam and the Vascular Technology specialty exam. The Ultrasound Physics/SPI and Vascular Technology eCourses address the didactic concepts tested on these two exams. After viewing the eCourses, candidates can then use the respective ExamSim to determine their level of preparedness for their exams and streamline their exam prep. This package offers a savings of over $190.00 from the individual retail price.
Ultrasound Physics/SPI eCourse
The Ultrasound Physics/SPI eCourse is designed to cover the content tested on the ARDMS Sonography Principles and Instrumentation (SPI) exam and the Physics portion of the CCI RCS and RVS exams. Concepts covered include ultrasound math principles, waves, attenuation, pulsed wave operation, transducers, system operation, Doppler, artifacts, bioeffects, contrast and harmonics, quality assurance, and hemodynamics. Acclaimed physics author Frank Miele, MSEE, delivers these lectures in an engaging and interactive format, relating ultrasound physics to the clinical aspects of what ultrasound professionals do on a day-to-day basis.
Ultrasound Physics Viewing Time (including interactive questions): 22.5 hours
Ultrasound Physics Review Time (optional): 17 hours
Vascular Technology eCourse
Designed by the Society for Vascular Ultrasound and Pegasus Lectures, this course provides a comprehensive resource for ultrasound professionals desiring to improve their knowledge of vascular ultrasound and/or prepare for the vascular technology credential(s). The course, created in a flexible, modular format, consists of four sections: Arterial, Cerebrovascular, Venous, and Vascular Test Principles.
The unique Pegasus Direct delivery platform allows the participant to view modules at their convenience, print notes, and even create their own review session. During viewing of the core modules, the participant utilizes a playlist which allows for bookmarking areas of weakness or of particular interest for review. The player software recalls the participant’s bookmarks, creating a customized review, specific to each participant’s individual’s needs.
Vascular Technology eCourse Viewing Time (including interactive questions): 15.0 hrs
Vascular Technology eCourse Review (optional): 11.5 hrs

Ultrasound Physics/SPI ExamSim and
Vascular Technology ExamSim Programs
Prepare for your registry with confidence! The Pegasus Ultrasound Physics/SPI and Vascular Technology ExamSim programs utilize a patented Intelligent Analysis algorithm to determine the participant’s level of preparedness for their credentialing exam. In addition to detailing areas of weakness, the program provides a breakdown of score by topic and subtopic so the user can target those areas in their final preparation. Information is captured with each keystroke during the practice exams allowing the participant to review their specific test-taking habits (i.e. how they are changing answers, what their score would have been if they had not changed answers, time per topic, question types they get wrong and how they performed relative to cardinal test-taking rules.) The comprehensive review section provides thorough explanations to ensure that the participant fully understands the rationale of the question. A full, interactive test-taking tutorial is also included and is designed to improve the user’s overall test-taking skills. Each exam can be taken up to eight times in test mode with unlimited access to all exams in review mode.
By using this ExamSim program to prepare for your credentialing exam, you will have studied the key concepts, focused on your areas of weakness, and used your study time efficiently.
