The 36th Annual Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease – Adult and Pediatric Cases, Including Multimodality Imaging will highlight the use of echocardiography and other cardiac imaging techniques to recognize, understand, and manage patients with congenital heart disease using a case based format. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of imaging techniques in the care of the adult with CHD. This four-day symposium is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy, clinical aspects, imaging, and management of patients with congenital heart disease. The symposium will include case discussions, didactic seminars, anatomic and imaging correlations, discussion of multimodal imaging and scanning seminars to illustrate the impact of cardiac imaging on treatment, diagnosis, and management of patients with congenital heart disease.
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 the completion of the course. You must have attended the course as a live attendee in order to access these.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Describe the anatomy and physiology of common congenital cardiac conditions as well as the surgical/interventional procedures used to treat them
- Interpret 2-D echo/Doppler hemodynamics in the setting of congenital heart disease
- Recognize limitations of echocardiography and other imaging techniques
- Integrate the most up-to-date echocardiographic and multimodality imaging techniques into patient management
This course is designed for adult and pediatric cardiologists, surgeons, fellows in training, and cardiac sonographers. The emphasis is on echocardiography, but topics will include both multimodality imaging and clinical management strategies.
