Overview

CONFERENCE LOCATION
Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort

San Antonio, TX 78251


Echo Fiesta is designed to provide a practical review of the current uses and limitations of 2-D echocardiography, Doppler and color flow imaging in the assessment of adult myocardial, ischemic, pericardial, and valvular heart disease. Traditional topics in the field of echocardiography including the assessment of systolic and diastolic function, quantitative Doppler, and stress echocardiography will be presented. In addition, newer techniques including 3-D echo and Doppler and 2-D strain imaging will be presented.  The program will concentrate on practical points regarding daily use of these techniques with illustrative examples from a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders.

To reinforce the knowledge gained from the course and ensure lasting value to each attendee’s practice, Mayo Clinic provides access to all course presentations with voice-over recordings after completion of the course. You must have attended the course as a live attendee in order to access these.

COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
• Identify current two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler methods to assess
left ventricular systolic function;
• Develop an integrated approach to the assessment of valvular stenosis and valvular
regurgitation;
• Describe the diastolic filling patterns in diverse cardiac disorders including
cardiomyopathies, systemic diseases, and pericardial disease;
• Recognize echocardiographic findings of ischemic heart disease, including clinical
applications and interpretation of stress echocardiography, detection of mechanical
complications of myocardial infarction;
• Define the role of echocardiography in the evaluation and management of the
cardiomyopathies;
• Describe echocardiography findings in congenital heart disease;
• Recognize the potential of new technology in the field of echocardiography.
 
INTENDED AUDIENCE
This course is designed for cardiologists, cardiovascular trainees, and cardiac sonographers who perform and interpret echo exams and wish to enhance their knowledge of the echocardiographic assessment of adult cardiac disease. Participants with a basic knowledge of echocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.
