State-of-the-Art Echocardiography™

Registration is now open!

February 18-21, 2022
The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa
Scottsdale, AZ

This year’s program follows the themes of structural heart disease, myocardial and pericardial disease, coronary artery disease, and interventional echocardiography. During the course, over 100 cases will be presented by the expert faculty to highlight what echo brings to each theme, help clinicians recognize and avoid common errors and pitfalls, and learn how to apply the guidelines in a practical manner.

The faculty consists of recognized leaders in the field of echocardiography acclaimed for their teaching abilities. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the faculty one-on-one in the preconference, computer-based Learning Lab.

New features include:

  • Expanded Learning Lab: New topics include advanced hemodynamics, myocardial strain, and structural heart disease. Participants will perform 3D cropping, measurements such as LV and RV Strain, LA strain, critical measurements for TAVR, TMVR, MitraClip, and LAA occluder.
  • Case-based Learning: The course will include a special focus on hemodynamics, structural heart disease, interventional echocardiography, and advanced diastolic function.
  • Glimpse of the Future: Learn about the impact of artificial intelligence, and machine learning on the field of echocardiography.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be better able to:

  • Incorporate state-of-the-art clinical applications of echocardiography and Doppler ultrasound into clinical decision-making
  • Utilize echocardiography in valvular heart disease
  • Evaluate patients prior to, during, and following various structural heart disease procedures such as TAVR, Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair, and left atrial appendage closure
  • Perform a 3D acquisition and measurement of biventricular size and function
  • Explain the new diastolic function guidelines
  • Assess right and left ventricular function with state-of-the-art echocardiographic technology including strain imaging

Learning Lab Session

(Additional Fee Required.)

A learning lab will be offered for a full day on Friday, February 18, and a half day on Saturday, February 19, 2022. Separate registration is required, and this session is included in the total hours of educational content offered at the course.

Limited to 100 registrants, this intimate workshop allows easy access to faculty members. Computer workstations are provided to teach each participant how to quantitate fundamental aspects of clinical echocardiography. Expert faculty will demonstrate advanced hemodynamics, 3D, and myocardial strain imaging. Each participant will have plenty of case studies to practice demonstrated techniques. The small group environment allows the opportunity for nearly private instruction from top practitioners in the field.
