Inaugural Echo in Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease Virtual Experience

The Inaugural Echo in Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease is a two-day virtual course, presenting the latest information on established and emerging cardiovascular ultrasound technologies, clinical care and practical considerations in children and adults with congenital heart disease. Expert U.S. and international physician and sonographer faculty discuss current technologies with a particular focus on how they can be effectively applied in the clinical setting. Case-based approaches and state-of-the-art review are both used to discuss new and established uses of echocardiography for diagnosis and guiding management in patients with a broad array of congenital cardiovascular conditions.

Topics include:

  • Unrepaired ACHD
  • Cutting-edge functional analysis
  • Imaging in high stakes environments
  • Contemporary approaches to left heart valve disease
  • Happy & Healthy: A Resiliency/Well Being Session
  • Exciting debates on fetal and research echocardiography
  • And many more.

Two channels of content will be simulcast, allowing participants to choose topics of greatest interest to them, however all content will be available on-demand for 90 days starting September 19. Unique features include live, interactive small group case presentations, a virtual networking event, and a focused resiliency and well-being session. All sessions will have dedicated Question and Answer time where faculty will be joining live to answer participant questions.
