XXIII World Congress of Clinical Cardiology, Echocardiography & Allied Imaging Techniques and XXII Annual Conference of Indian Academy of Echocardiography

Categories:
ASE Sponsored Live CME Programs, CME Programs From Other Organizations, Events
Date:
Thursday, October 5, 2017 – Sunday, October 8, 2017
Location:
Birla Institute of Scientific Research, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India
Description:

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.

Category:
CME Programs From Other Organizations
Date:
Friday, November 10, 2017 – Sunday, November 12, 2017
Location:
Dallas, Texas.
Description:
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.

Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia, Scottsdale, AZ
Description:
Echocardiography has become an essential tool for all clinicians involved in managing patients with known or suspected heart diseases. Echocardiography is also widely used for clinical trials in assessing cardiac function and hemodynamics as an enrollment criterion and/or an end-point. Therefore, it is critical that echocardiography techniques and measurements are standardized for best practice and reliable clinical trial result.

The first part of this 4 day meeting will focus on the use of echocardiography and other imaging modalities for valvular heart disease and heart failure. The basic and the state-of-the-art echocardiography practice will be presented in lecturers, workshops, and live demonstrations. The second part will focus on optimal use of 2-D, 3-D, and strain imaging in the operating room, hemodynamic as well as cardiac emergencies, cardiac catheterization laboratory, and other important clinical areas where echocardiography is essential. The meeting will end with workshops for strain and 3-D imaging.

Topics to include:
Cardiac Function • Valvular Heart Disease • Cardiac Hemodynamics • Heart Failure • 2-D & 3-D Echo • Strain Imaging • Myocardial Disease • Cardiac Catheterization Echo • Echo for Clinical Trials • Multimodality Imaging • Preventive Imaging • Innovative Echo Applications • Ischemic Heart Disease

Many patients with atrial fibrillation cannot take anticoagulation initially or have to stop it later due to complications. Even newly invented anticoagulants are often unsuitable for these patients. LAA closure has become a reasonable alternative.

During this 2-day course you will get an overview on all aspects of this treatment modality. Clinical studies will be covered and we will also demonstrate how to perform the procedure step by step and how to prevent and manage complications. Live case transmissions are a core of this course and will allow direct attendee-operator interaction to maximize the learning experience.

Sonography | The Hands-On Abdominal Ultrasound Imaging & Doppler Course

Category:
CME Programs From Other Organizations
Date:
Friday, December 8, 2017 – Sunday, December 10, 2017
Location:
Dallas, Texas.
Description:
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.
