Mentice Peripheral Angiography is designed for healthcare professionals to learn the essential skills of image acquisition and manipulation in a risk-free training environment. The module provides a range of patient cases with different peripheral anatomies and scenarios facilitating technical and procedural understanding for diagnostic purposes.

The module offers a guide to learn and teach good fluoroscopy and core angiography skills in a large number of cases within the vascular tree, from the renal arteries all the way down to the plantar arteries. The cases also include more challenging anatomies and vascular diseases.


The portfolio as a whole represents comprehensive training in diagnostic procedures, with learning objectives designed to meet the needs of endovascular trainees and other members of the vascular team.
