The Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular Diseases CME Program will be holding it’s next course entitled “Basic to Advanced Echocardiography from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville” on May 17 – 20, 2017 in Asheville, North Carolina at The Omni Grove Park Inn.
The course will begin with a discussion of echocardiographic assessment of left and right ventricular function, including presentations on diastolic function and strain imaging for assessing myocardial function. We will then discuss a broad range of disease states for which echocardiography is useful, including ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, pericardial disease, and cardiomyopathies. The presentations will include basic concepts as well as advanced techniques including 3-D imaging and strain imaging. Throughout the course many cases will be presented.
- Apply Doppler principles and hemodynamics to the assessment of valvular heart disease, including systematic assessment of prosthetic valves
- Use 2-D, DopPler strain methods to assess myocardial function
- Illustrate the appropriate use of echo Doppler in myocardial and pericardial disease
