The rest of the cardiac patient below the diaphragm counts too, and the pushback from Radiology is long since over. Hepatic, biliary and renal function alone constitute three of the resource-consuming aspects of right and left heart failure. Official position 25 years ago addressed the concept of renal failure in CHF as being so significant, it should be managed as if it were a separate patient.

You can expand your clinical service potential by learning the most simple, systematic and authoritative protocol for these and the other, incidental findings you'll encounter as you complete the full cardiovascular evaluation of the heart patient. This course is hands-on intensive from the start and continues throughout, to make certain you're a systematic expert in the soft tissue and blood flow elements of the abdominal sonogram. Scan lab open 24 hours, post course support extends in perpetuity for free.

It is true that the pass rate for the RPVI Exam is well over 90%, but the real value in this course is to build practical efficiency for you in your practice. This classroom is small enough to give you one-on-one discussion about every element of the process. With a teaching process unlike traditional methods you'll gain all the requisite protocols, criteria, mindset and verbiage to confidently and quickly report findings from any vascular ultrasound study.
Four decades of practice and teaching the subject lie behind the course. Content is focused on your experience and specialty regardless of your background. Though most physicians prepare for the Exam by reading a book, this course will amplify and accelerate your practical lifelong (and time consuming) process of analyzing, reporting and using the data.

The theme of the congress is "Potentials of Clinical Cardiology by Echocardiography and Imaging".

This congress will provide a forum where medical professionals from this country and abroad will have a unique opportunity to discuss the various aspects of cardiovascular medicine, including recent advances, diagnosis, prognosis and various therapeutic aspects.

Cardiovascular imaging has now evolved as a fully integrated technology in a patient workup right from diagnosis to therapeutic decision making. As such, for the first time, its implementation in clinical cardiology will also be a subject of focus. Various disciplines of cardiology like interventional cardiology, pediatric cardiology, electrophysiology, pacing, CRT etc. have made tremendous strides. As such, in this congress a very informative scientific program, offering a comprehensive and innovative educational sessions, will be designed in concordance with growing demands of the various disciplines of cardiology. This, hopefully, will be achieved by symposia, case studies, hemodynamic workshops and meet the experts sessions etc, Hence the scientific content will be a judicious mixture between clinical education and latest scientific developments, keeping in mind the requirements of physicians, cardiologists, sonographers, fellows, interventionists, heath care policy makers and other health care professionals. A major part of the program will be dedicated to clinical practitioners. The audience will have ample opportunity to interact with international and national faculty.

There will be a unique, case based interactive pre-congress CME on October 5th, 2017.

We hope, besides enjoying the scientific sessions, you will enjoy Jaipur, Rajasthan for its Royal monuments, finest museums, shopper's paradise, courtly grace and exquisite cuisine, besides its nearness to Taj Mahal and other delightful sites of neighbouring places.

We hope you will absorb better knowledge of various aspects of cardiology and be confident to face new challenges.

We look forward to welcoming you for an exciting and unforgettable event.

The rest of the cardiac patient below the diaphragm counts too, and the pushback from Radiology is long since over. Hepatic, biliary and renal function alone constitute three of the resource-consuming aspects of right and left heart failure. ACC's official poisitno 25 years ago addressed the concept of renal failure in CHF as being so significant, it should be managed as if it were a separate patient.

You can expand your cliical serivce potential by learning the most simple, systematic and authoritative protocol for these and the other, incidental findings you'll encounter as you complete the full cardiovascular evaluation of the heart patient. This course is hands-on intensive from the start and continues throughout, to make certain you're a systematic expert in the soft tissue and blood flow elements of the abdominal sonogram. Scan lab open 24 hours, post course support extends in perpetuity for free.
