Echo Revolutionis designed to provide a practical review of the current uses and limitations of two-dimensional echocardiography, Dopple, and color flow imaging in the assessment of adult mycardial, ischemic, pericardial, and valvular disease. Traditional topics in the field of echocardiography including assessment of systolic and diastolic function, quantitative Doppler, and stress echocardiography will be presented. In addition, newer techniques including 3D echo and strain imaging will be discussed.

Upon conclustion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Apply Doppler principles and hemodynamics to the assessment of valvular heart disease and the systematic assessment of prosthetic valves, and appreciate the surgical implications of these findings
  • Utilize appropriate methods of the quantitation of systolic function and practical assessments of diastolic function
  • Recognize the impact of appropriate use criteria for the echo assessment of ischemic heart disease and understand the echocardiographic features of mechanical complications of mycardial infarction
  • Identify characteristic echocardiographuc features of cardiac tumors and masses, their pathologic correlates, and how they can be differentiated from artifacts
  • Recognize the potention and current utility of new technology

This course is designed for physicians 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 basic knowledge of echocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.
