Mayo Clinic Course: Basic to Advanced Echocardiography at Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville

  • Conference Call
  • 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 1720, 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.

    Course Objectives

    • 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
    • Rec­og­nize the util­ity of echocar­dio­g­ra­phy TEE includ­ing 3-​D in the inter­ven­tional practice
    • Inte­grate the appli­ca­tion of echocar­dio­g­ra­phy in heart fail­ure and the treatment
    • Rec­og­nize clin­i­cal appli­ca­tions of stress echocardiography
