Overview

This advanced course is designed to provide the clinician and advanced sonographer with an update on thoracic, stress, and transesophageal echocardiography as well as cardiac CT and MRI. This is not a "how-to" course, but instead will concentrate on the application of these modalities to clinical decision making.

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

  • Optimize selection of imaging modalities to aid in clinical decision making for evaluation and management of patients with vavular heart disease
  • Identify normal and abnormal features of patients with prosthetic valves
  • Identify the pitfalls of interpretation with exercise and dobutamine stress echocardiography
  • Apply Doppler hemodynamics and strain imaging into clinical decision making in patients with heart failure symptoms with both normal and abnormal systolic function
  • Describe a systemic approach to echocardiography for patients with complex congenital heart disease
  • Recognize the utility of echocardiography in patients with acute ischemic syndromes and other acute illnesses requiring admission to the intensive care unit
  • Identify common indications and potential pitfalls for intraoperative and interventional transesophageal echocardiography

Attendance at this Mayo Clinic conference does not indicate, nor guarantee competence or proficiency in the performance of any procedures which may be discussed or taught in this course.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
The course is intended for physicians and sonographers with an advanced background in echocardiography.
