This intensive five-day program provides practitioners at the beginning of the learning curve in cardiac imaging with anatomy, physiology, a detailed knowledge of sonographic planes, terminology, measurements and valvular assessment. There is an emphasis on the practical aspects of these topics with “hands-on” tuition, led by expert sonographers. Low student/tutor ratios (4:1) ensure comprehensive practical tuition in a personalised fashion.

Course content assumes an understanding of:
• The basic physics of ultrasound, including the basic principles of Doppler.
• The cardiac cycle and relationship to the ECG

• Normal adult anatomy
• Physiology
• Sonographic appearances and terminology
• 2D/cardiac anatomy
• Measurements, using 2D, M-mode and Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI)
• Wall motion assessment
• Valvular assessment using colour, pulsed wave and continuous wave Doppler
• Normal examination protocol – putting it all together
• Common pathologies
• Case studies will also be discussed

Course Objectives:
• To provide a detailed description of the sonographic appearances of the heart
• To provide an insight into the haemodynamics and physiology of the heart
• To describe routine measurements associated with M-Mode, 2D and Doppler
• To describe the normal values for heart chamber sizes and wall thickness
• To assess the valves, using qualitative and quantitative analysis and measurements
• To provide an understanding of the physics of Colour and Doppler
• To develop an appreciation of the clinical terminology used in echocardiography
• To provide an overview of common pathologies identified by ultrasound examination
• To provide participants with an opportunity for extensive tutor assisted hands-on echocardiographic experience and access to experienced sonographers for specific problems
