This livestreaming program will provide a review of state-of-the-art 2-D, 3-D, M-Mode, Doppler and transesophageal echocardiography with an emphasis on newer and more rapidly changing areas. The topics to be covered include valvular heart disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, amyloid, use of echo in surgery, and each day will provide a potpourri of challenging cases. Access to course recordings for one year with registration.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Use echocardiographic and Doppler methods to assess valvular heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathies and the utility of newer techniques
- Apply new valve guidelines appropriately employing qualitative and quantitative measures to describe the severity of valvular heart disease
- Utilize echocardiography to determine which patients should be referred for interventions, or surgery versus medical therapy for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and identify the critical role that echo plays in structural heart disease and interventional procedures
