Event Overview
Welcome message:

Introduction to Adult Echocardiography Course is a live, five-day hands-on course designed to provide a strong foundation to perform and/or interpret adult cardiac ultrasound examinations. The Intro to Echo program is taught by leading echocardiography experts, and includes lectures, interactive case studies using an audio response system (ARS), and extensive hands-on scanning, featuring a 3:1 ratio using live models for a realistic training experience. This hands-on cardiac ultrasound training program includes the review of 200+ cases to improve the participants’ ability to recognize commonly seen pathology and improve confidence in both performing and interpreting adult cardiac ultrasound examinations. 

This comprehensive, Introduction to Adult Echocardiography course will increase knowledge and competence to immediately  begin integrating the newly acquired skills into clinical practice.

At the completion of the program the participant should be able to:

  1. Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret Echocardiography examinations.
  2. Demonstrate proper transducer manipulation and system optimization to produce diagnostic images (sonographer) and recognize potential imaging errors (Physician).
  3. Demonstrate routine scan protocols to evaluate an adult patient using 2D/M-Mode/Color Flow & Doppler echocardiographic techniques and demonstrate appropriate measurements.
  4. Identify normal/abnormal characteristics of 2D cardiac anatomy and state the role of cardiac Doppler and list the necessary qualitative/quantitative measurements.
  5. Identify the ultrasound findings associated with valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, ischemic heart disease, pericardial disease and cardiac masses.
  6. List the latest imaging techniques in quantification of right and left ventricle wall motion. Document findings and apply standadrized guidelines during compilation of an Echocardiography worksheet (sonographer) and dictated report (Physician).
  7. List the steps necessary for system optimization during contrast echo imaging.
  8. Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques & interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic/treatment accuracy.
