This course is specifically designed to prepare attendees taking the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) certification examination. It has a focused emphasis on the NBE examination format, ultrasound physics, 2D and M-Mode, hemodynamics, valvular heart disease, ischemic heart disease, heart failure and cardiomyopathies, pericardial disease, congenital heart disease, and newer imaging techniques. The course will review all aspects of cardiovascular ultrasound with a practical and clinical disease orientated focus. Well-known experts and recognized educators in each field of echocardiography will give in-depth didactic lectures pertaining particularly to integration of echocardiographic data into clinical practice. Each lecture will be followed by multiple choice type question and answer sessions facilitated by an audience response system. Special evening sessions will include a hemodynamic workshop and an entertaining game show involving the entire audience that will review highlights of material covered in the course.
This course is intended for cardiologists, echocardiographers, and cardiology fellows. Participants with working knowledge of echocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.
