Description provided by the Organizer

Upon completion of this activity the learner should be able to:

  • Increase the participant’s knowledge to better perform and/or interpret Echocardiography examinations.
  • Demonstrate proper transducer manipulation and system optimization to produce diagnostic images (sonographer) and recognize potential imaging errors (Physician).
  • Demonstrate routine scan protocols to evaluate an adult patient using 2D/M-Mode/Color Flow & Doppler echocardiographic techniques.
  • Perform standard 2D, m-mode and Doppler measurements.
  • Identify normal/abnormal characteristics of 2D cardiac anatomy.
  • State the role of cardiac Doppler and list the necessary qualitative/quantitative measurements.
  • Identify the ultrasound findings associated with valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, ischemic heart disease, pericardial disease and cardiac masses.
  • List the latest imaging techniques in quantification of right and left ventricle wall motion. Document findings and apply standardized guidelines during compilation of an Echocardiography worksheet (sonographer) and dictated report (Physician).
  • List the steps necessary for system optimization during contrast echo imaging.
  • Increase confidence to incorporate protocols, techniques & interpretation criteria to improve diagnostic/treatment accuracy.
