A wide range of topics will be addressed, including pathophysiology, diagnostic investigations, treatment and management.

The newly adopted wound, ischemic and foot infection (WIfI) classification system and the latest diagnostic tools quantifying skin perfusion will be presented alongside more longstanding investigations such as duplex and the toe/ankle brachial pressure index (TBI, ABPI) assessments.

There will also be a troubleshooting session to explore the more challenging audible waveforms that can be encountered while performing an ABPI test.
