This course will begin with basic concepts, including physics of ultrasound, Doppler and contrast. We will then discuss a broad range of disease states for which echocardiography is useful, including ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, pericardial disease and cardiomyopathies. Presentations will include basic concepts as well as advanced techniques, including 3-D/4-D imaging and strain imaging. Many cases will be presented throughout the course.
