COURSE DESCRIPTIONThe course is designed to provide the sonographer with a practical review of thecurrent uses and limitations of two-dimensional echocardiography, Doppler andcolor flow imaging in the assessment of valvular disease. Recent advances in thefield of echocardiography including the assessment of systolic and diastolicfunction, quantitative Doppler, and stress echocardiography will be presented. Thelectures will be illustrated with digital image presentations of clinical cases inechocardiography and time has been allowed for participants to ask questions aswell as interact closely with the course faculty. An audience response system willbe used during case presentations.Interactive hemodynamic workshops and case review sessions will be conducted toallow participants the opportunity to apply the principles they are learning.Participants will receive an electronic syllabus and hemodynamic guide for theirfuture reference. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own calculators tomaximize participation in the hemodynamic workshops.COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVESUpon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:• Discuss standard echocardiographic methods used to assess valvular heart disease;• Develop an integrated approach to the Doppler assessment of valvular stenosis and valvular regurgitation; and,• Discuss emerging applications of echocardiography in the evaluation of native and prosthetic valve dysfunction.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 AUDIENCEThe course is designed for sonographers and physicians who wish to enhance theirknowledge of the echocardiographic assessment of adult cardiac disease.Participants with a basic knowledge of echocardiographic techniques andapplications will benefit most from this program.CREDITCollege of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, is accredited by the Accreditation Council forContinuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education forphysicians.College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, designates this live activity for a maximum of11.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
