Event Description

The interpretation of an echocardiogram has become more than just evaluating wall motion abnormalities to calculate an ejection fraction. Current equipment provides the clinician with a wealth of information unimagined several years ago. Interpreters find it increasingly difficult to make sense of the reams of information provided by the cardiac sonographer. This course will provide you with real world case studies to sharpen your interpretive skills. You will see both normal, and a wide variety of pathology, along with the appropriate echocardiographic views and data necessary to make the correct interpretation. You will also be presented with typical diagnostic challenges such as poor imaging windows and limited data to help you develop techniques to get the most useful information possible from the exam. Physicians applying for credentials, accreditation, or reaccreditation will find this a valuable means to quickly and efficiently acquire documentation for additional case studies and CME.
