  • 2. COURSE DESCRIPTIONMayo Echocardiography Review Course is an intensive 3 ½ day course specificallydesigned to prepare attendees taking the American Society of Echocardiography(ASE) certification examination. It has a focused emphasis on the ASE examinationformat, ultrasound physics, 2D and M-Mode, hemodynamics, valvular heartdisease, ischemic heart disease, heart failure and cardiomyopathies, pericardialdisease, congenital heart disease and newer imaging techniques.The course will review all aspects of cardiovascular ultrasound with a practical andclinical disease orientated focus. Well-known experts and recognized educators ineach field of echocardiography will give in-depth didactic lectures pertainingparticularly to integration of echocardiographic data into clinical practice. Eachlecture will be followed by multiple choice type question and answer sessionsfacilitated by an audience response system. Special evening sessions will includecardiac image and gross pathology correlation, a hemodynamic workshop and anentertaining game show involving the entire audience that will review highlights ofmaterial covered in the course. The course will conclude with a 2 hour mockexamination.COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVESUpon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:• Explain basic physical principles of ultrasound and instrumentation;• Correlate cardiac gross pathology with echocardiographic images;• valuate cardiac chamber size, left ventricular systolic and diastolic function and E right ventricular systolic function;• Analyze and interpret echocardiographic derived hemodynamic data;• nterpret transesophageal images and distinguish attributes and limitations I versus transthoracic echocardiography;• valuate acute and chronic ischemic heart disease using standard and stress E echocardiography;• iagnose and quantify etiology and severity of native and prosthetic valvular D heart disease;• istinguish and differentiate causes of heart failure, cardiomyopathies and D pericardial disease;• Diagnose and differentiate cardiac masses;• Diagnose and distinguish diseases of the aorta;• dentify echocardiographic features of systemic disease with associated cardiac I involvement; and,• ntegrate newer echocardiographic technologies to complement / supplement I standard echocardiography.Attendance at this Mayo course does not indicate nor guarantee competence orproficiency in the performance of any procedures which may be discussed or taughtin this course.INTENDED AUDIENCEThis course is intended for cardiologists, echocardiographers, cardiology fellows,and cardiac sonographers. Participants with working knowledge ofechocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.
