Objectives & Topics
At the completion of this program, the participant should be able to:

1. Identify and analyze the basics of cardiac anatomy/physiology.
2. Perform a routine 2D/M-Mode/Doppler (pulsed-wave, continuous wave and Color Flow imaging) echocardiographic examination and appropriate measurements.
3. Identify normal/abnormal characteristics of 2D cardiac anatomy and explain the role of cardiac Doppler and the necessary qualitative/ quantitative measurements.
4. Discuss the U/S findings associated with valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, ischemic heart disease (CAD), pericardial disease, cardiac masses and LV systolic and diastolic function.
5. Assess cardiac Doppler/color indications, applications, normal/abnormal waveform characteristics, Doppler measurements and color characteristics in the adult patient.
6. Discuss and apply the guidelines for structuring a dictated Echocardiography report.
7. Increase knowledge and confidence to perform and/or interpret echocardiography examinations.
8. Apply the information discussed in a clinical setting, under supervised conditions until an accepted level of proficiency has been achieved.
