Join your colleagues for succinct didactics and interactive, case-based learning of the latest in clinical echocardiography. The program will present a variety of clinical problems and discuss the role of 2D/3D echo, Doppler modalities, strain imaging, flow quantitation, and contrast echo in the diagnosis and therapeutic guidance in a variety of clinical scenarios. In-depth discussion of the strengths of various echo techniques and parameters will be coupled with tips to avoid pitfalls.
The conference will discuss the spectrum of valve disease – both common and uncommon, surgical and percutaneous interventions and complicated valve issues. Application of echo in aortic diseases, ischemic and non-ischemic myocardial disorders, acute and chronic heart failure, arrhythmic diseases, pericardial disorders and neoplastic pathology will be discussed with illustrative patient examples.
Highlights include a wet lab workshop to demonstrate valvular anatomy and related structures, the application of echo in choosing and guiding catheter-based procedures, a Doppler workshop, a tour of case studies to teach nuances, an echo contest and a vascular ultrasound workshop.
