uses and limitations of two-dimensional echocardiography, Doppler and color flow
imaging in the assessment of valvular heart disease. This succinct weekend course
is designed so as to not unduly interfere with work schedules and to present the
second half of a comprehensive adult echocardiography curriculum. The first half of
the curriculum was presented in St. Louis last year and focused on echocardiographic
assessment of myocardial and pericardial disease.

This year’s program will focus on valvular disease anatomy and quantitative
assessment, prosthetic valve assessment and dysfunction, endocarditis, and special
topics in adult echocardiography. The lectures will be illustrated with digital image

22nd Annual Echocardiographic Workshop on 2-D and Doppler Echocardiography at Vail

Category:
CME Programs From Other Organizations
Date:
Monday, March 9, 2015 – Thursday, March 12, 2015
Location:
Vail Marriott, Vail, CO
Description:
This program will provide a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art 2-D, Doppler and transesophageal echocardiography with a strong emphasis on newer and more rapidly changing areas.  The topics to be covered include diastology, ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, application of TEE in clinical practice, and cardiomyopathy.  The role of echo relative to the newer imaging modalities will be discussed.  There are also afternoon workshops on heart failure, hemodynamics, congenital heart disease, and stress echo.  The final workshop will include a series of clinical cases which will focus on integrating various imaging modalities to provide the highest quality of patient care.  The course is designed for the clinician and sonographer who are actively involved in adult echocardiography and wish to gain additional practical experience in these specific areas.  Daily reading sessions will provide the opportunity to interpret case studies and to compare and discuss diagnoses with the faculty.  An integrated format combining theory and practice will be utilized.  In the morning sessions, a traditional lecture series will present state-of-the-art information on selected topics.  Application of the techniques to clinical practice will be emphasized.  Lectures covering pertinent general cardiology topics, such as appropriateness criteria, will also be provided. 
 
In the afternoon, attendees will have the opportunity to apply the lecture material in a workshop environment.  A large number of cases will be presented, analyzed and discussed.  Each afternoon, attendees will be able to participate in reading sessions, covering a wide spectrum of diseases in clinical cardiology.
