The course will begin with a discussion of echocardiographic assessment of left and right ventricular function, including presentations on diastolic function and strain imaging for assessing myocardial function. We will then discuss a broad range of disease states for which echocardiography is useful, including ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, pericardial disease, and cardiomyopathies. The presentations will include basic concepts as well as advanced techniques including 3-D imaging and strain imaging. Throughout the course many cases will be presented.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Apply Doppler principles and hemodynamics to the assessment of valvular heart disease, including systematic assessment of prosthetic valves
  • Use 2-D, Doppler, and strain methods to assess myocardial function
  • Illustrate the appropriate use of echo Doppler in myocardial and pericardial disease
  • Describe the utility of echocardiography, including 3-D transesophageal echocardiography, for the interventional practice
  • Integrate echocardiography into the diagnosis and management of heart failure
  • Recognize clinical applications of stress echocardiography
