The program will focus on valvular disease anatomy and quantitative assessment, prosthetic valve assessment and dysfunction, endocarditis and other aspects of adult echocardiography. The lectures will be illustrated with digital image presentations of clinical cases in echocardiography and time has been allowed for participants to ask questions, as well as interact closely with the course faculty.
The course is designed for cardiac sonographers, echo students, fellows in training, and physicians who wish to enhance their knowledge of the echocardiographic assessment of adult cardiac disease. Participants with a basic knowledge of echocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
• Discuss standard echocardiographic methods used to assess valvular heart disease
• Develop an integrated approach to the Doppler assessment of valvular stenosis and valvular regurgitation
• Discuss emerging applications of echocardiography in the evaluation of native and prosthetic valve dysfunction
