Description

Basic echocardiography will be reviewed and the latest advances in echocardiography will be demonstrated through lecture and case studies. Participants will be exposed to principles of imaging, exercise and pharmacological stress, contrast, harmonics, Doppler tissue imaging, strain, strain rate, cardiac resynchronization and 2D, 3D and 4D transesophageal echocardiography, valvular, coronary, myocardial and congenital heart disease. Case studies will be interspersed throughout each lecture to emphasize the importance and clinical utility of each technique discussed.

Target Audience and Educational Goals

Cardiologists and Internal Medicine Physicians, Echocardiography
Technicians, Sonographers and Nurses.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of the course, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the basic physics of ultrasound and Doppler echocardiography.
  • Identify the basic role of echocardiography to evaluate valvular and myocardial diseases, with an emphasis on newer imaging modalities.
  • Evaluate the role of transesophageal echocardiography in patients presenting with stroke for cardio version and for Evaluation of patients with endocarditis, tumors and abscesses.
  • Apply the principles of imaging techniques for stress echocardiography including latest data on risk stratification and prognosis in patients with ischemic and non-ischemic cardiomyopathy.
  • Recognize the basic principles of contrast echocardiography including interaction of contrast with ultrasound to assess the role of contrast in LV opacification, Doppler signal enhancement, evaluation of masses and myocardial perfusion.
  • Assess the role of echocardiography and diagnosing the assessment of congenital heart disease.
  • Use the latest literature regarding strain and strain rate imaging to identify patients who respond to cardiac resynchronization and use echocardiography optimization in patients undergoing resynchronization.
  • Evaluate the current developments and clinical indications for 3D and 4D Echo in clinical practice.
  • Examine the latest imaging techniques in qualification of left ventricular wall motion.
  • Role of CT, CMR and nuclear in assessing coronary artery disease and comparison with echocardiography.
  • Prepare echocardiography physicians for the Echo Boards.
