April 24 - 26, 2015 - Sawgrass Marriott, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

Course Directors: Ammash, Naser M., M.D. O'Leary, Patrick W., M.D.


This course focuses on the use of multi-modality imaging techniques in the management of adult patients with congenital cardiac malformations. It uses a clinical case-based format to highlight the impact that echocardiography, cardiac CT and MRI scanning can have in the care of these complex patients. The goal of the course is to improve participants’ understanding of the appropriate application of these techniques and advance their knowledge of the anatomy of, and management strategies related to, the adult patient with congenital heart disease. The symposium is led by a distinguished faculty of congenital cardiologists, cardiac pathologists and cardiac surgeons with expertise in treatment, diagnosis and management of patients with congenital heart disease.
