Registration & Housing Now Open!

State-of-the-Art Echocardiography Live Course Dates:
February 18-20, 2023

Optional Preconference Learning Lab (additional fee required) – February 17-18, 2023

The 2023 program follows the themes of structural heart disease, myocardial and pericardial disease, coronary artery disease, and interventional echocardiography. During the course, presentations will 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, and during the question and answer sessions.

New in 2023:

  • Expanded Learning Lab: New topics include advanced hemodynamics, myocardial strain, and structural heart disease. Participants will perform 3D cropping, measurements such as left ventricular and right ventricular strain, left atrial strain, critical measurements for TAVR, TMVR, TEER, and left atrial appendage 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 in 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
