Overview

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. 

Unique Features:

  • Faculty members are clinical sonographers and echocardiologists
  • Easy access to faculty members during the entire conference
  • Afternoon on pediatric/adult congenital echocardiography
  • Lab accreditation (IAC Echocardiography)
  • Live scanning hands-on
  • Presentations involving multimodality imaging

COURSE 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 strain methods to assess myocardial function
  • Illustrate the appropriate use of echo Doppler in myocardial and pericardial disease
  • Recognize the utility of echocardiography TEE including 3-D in the interventional practice
  • Integrate the application of echocardiography in heart failure and the treatment
  • Recognize clinical applications of stress echocardiography
