Three-dimensional Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease: An Interactive Live Webinar
Date: February 15, 2017 Time: 5:00 pm Eastern Time
During this webinar, Dr. Girish Shirali will address the ASE guideline for Three-dimensional Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease, published in collaboration with EACVI. Three-dimensional Echocardiography (3DE) has become important in the management of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD), particularly with pre-surgical planning, guidance of catheter intervention, and functional assessment of the heart. The aim of this webinar is to provide a review of the optimal application of 3DE in CHD including principles of 3D data acquisition, image display, and quantitative techniques.
This webinar is designed for those with a primary interest and knowledge base in the ﬁeld of echocardiography and for other medical professionals with a speciﬁc interest in 3D Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease. This includes cardiovascular physicians, other cardiovascular providers, cardiac sonographers, surgeons, cardiac interventionalists, neurologists, residents, research nurses, clinicians, intensivists, and other medical professionals.
By the end of this presentation, the viewer should be better able to:
- List the modes and principles of 3D data acquisition
- Describe the application of the anatomic approach to image display
- List optimal sonographic projections for different congenital defects
- Compare quantitative techniques for ventricular volumetrics and functional assessment
