Register for this course
This two-day course has been designed to provide an overview of advances in imaging techniques and their application to better illustrate the complexities of morphology and function in congenital heart disease. Panelists will be representative experts in their fields, with the first day focusing on fetal cardiovascular topics, and the second day covering advanced imaging procedures.
Saturday, December 14th - Fetal Imaging and Outcomes
This day is comprised of a series of lectures and a multidisciplinary case-based panel discussion that will focus on fetal cardiovascular imaging and associated extra-cardiac factors that influence perinatal management and outcomes. Topics to be covered include, standard protocols for fetal cardiovascular assessment, evaluation of derangements in fetal cardiovascular dynamics, imaging and decision making in fetal congenital heart disease and arrhythmia, understanding neurologic outcomes and genetic associations with fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease.
Sunday, December 15th - Advanced Imaging Workshop and Complex Congenital Cardiac Morphology/Pathology
This day will be presented as two comprehensive sessions for the purpose of providing a better understanding of imaging correlates in complex congenital heart disease. The morning session will consist of an advanced imaging workshop that includes an opportunity for hands-on experience with multivendor 3D imaging and myocardial deformation imaging. The goal will be to enable every attendee to understand the clinical utility of the technology and to apply it to their clinical practice. The second session will focus on improving understanding of complex intra-cardiac anatomy in congenital heart disease utilizing pathology specimens and echocardiography. This will be achieved via a live echo-path correlation session with renowned cardiac pathologist Dr. Richard Van Praagh.
Who Should Attend?
Adult and Pediatric Cardiologists, Cardiologists-in-Training, Obstetricians and High Risk Perinatologists, Sonographers, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants in the field of Pediatric Cardiology and Obstetrics.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:
- Describe the complete assessment of fetal cardiac anatomy and physiology.
- Identify anatomic predictors in complex congenital heart disease diagnosed in utero and identify candidates for in utero cardiac interventions.
- Describe the normal fetal hemodynamic assessment and recognize derangements seen in fetal heart defects and multiple gestations and their impact on outcomes.
- Appraise current data on neurologic outcomes and quality of life in children with repaired congenital heart disease in the current era.
- Evaluate complex 3D anatomy of atrioventricular valves by correlating 2 and 3D echocardiographic images to pathologic specimens.
- Acquire and practice image acquisition skills for 3D and myocardial deformation imaging for the most popular imaging platforms.
- Assess complex intracardiac anatomy in complete atrioventricular canal and double outlet right ventricle.
