Conference Brochure

Echo in the Nation's Capital: Practical Review of Adult Echo for Physicians and Sonographers is organized by Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular Medicine CME (CV CME) and will be held from May 02 - 04, 2019 at Fairmont Washington D.C., Georgetown, Washington, Dist of Col, United States of America.

Intended Audience:
This course is designed for physicians and cardiac sonographers who perform and interpret echo exams and wish to enhance their knowledge of the echocardiographic assessment of adult cardiac disease. Participants with a basic knowledge of echocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.

Credit Statement (s):

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science designates this live activity for a maximum of 17 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Course Description :
The program is designed to provide a practical review of the current uses and limitations of two-dimensional echocardiography, Doppler, and color flow imaging in the assessment of adult myocardial, ischemic, pericardial, and valvular disease. Traditional topics in the field of echocardiography including assessment of systolic and diastolic function, quantitative Doppler, and stress echocardiography will be presented. In addition, newer techniques including 3D echo and strain imaging will be discussed.

Learning objectives:
• Apply Doppler principles and hemodynamics to the assessment of valvular heart disease and the systematic assessment of prosthetic valves;
• Utilize the proper technique for the assessment and clinical application of diastolic function; 
• Identify echo characteristics of systemic diseases;
• Recognize pathology and echocardiographic findings of ischemic heart disease and mechanical complications of myocardial infarction;
• Describe clinical applications of stress echocardiography;
• Identify the two-dimensional and Doppler findings for pericardial disease; 
• Recognize the role of new technology in the field of echocardiography including 3D and interventional echo and strain imaging;
• Recognize echo features of cardiac masses and diseases of the aorta.

Speakers: Patricia Pellikka, M.D., Sunil Mankad, M.D., Steve Lester, M.D., Joseph Maalouf, M.D.
