State-of-the-Art Echocardiography™ 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. Workshops on TAVR and TMVR, the two emerging therapeutic approaches for valvular heart disease, will be a highlight of this course.

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 Computer-based Learning Lab featuring advanced hemodynamics, 3D, and myocardial strain imaging including plenty of case studies to practice. Live imaging demonstrations will focus on acquisition techniques for 3D and myocardial strain imaging.


  • Image Acquisition Workshop: Learn techniques for 3D and myocardial speckle tracking (will include live scanning and a didactic lecture).
  • 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, Machine Learning, and Virtual Reality on the field of echocardiography.
  • Sonographers Only: A special sessions for sonographers to learn image acquisition, analytics and, optimization
