Learn how to acquire good quality data sets, how to post-process and interpret them and to perform quantitative analysis using dedicated software packages.
Development of three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) has significantly expanded the impact of cardiac ultrasounds on our understanding and management of heart diseases in clinical practice. Transthoracic and transesophageal 3DE provide a more anatomically sound and intuitive display of cardiac structure anatomy as well as a more accurate quantitation of cardiac chamber and heart valve geometry and function. Furthermore, transesophageal 3DE has become pivotal in planning and monitoring interventional procedures performed to manage structural heart diseases both in the cardiac catheterization laboratory and in the operative room.
However, this relatively new echocardiographic modality requires further education and specific training in order to learn how to acquire good quality data sets, how to post-process and interpret them and to perform quantitative analysis using dedicated software packages.
To meet this new and expanding educational needs two European Institutions with large experience in 3DE and its clinical applications have joined their expertise to provide a unique dedicated course to colleagues who want to learn how to use 3D echocardiography in the routine of the echo lab and in the challenging environment of interventional cardiology for structural heart diseases.
Upon conclusion of this program the participants should be able to:
Nina Ajmone Marsan MD, PhD, FESCAssociate professor, Department of Cardiology, Heart-Lung Center, Leiden, NL
Luigi P. Badano MD, PhD, FESC, FACCDirector of the Echocardiography Laboratory, Department of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Sciences, University of Padua Medical School, Padua, Italy
Victoria Delgado MD, PhD, FESCAssociate professor, Department of Cardiology, Heart-Lung Center, Leiden, NL
Denisa Muraru MD, PhDResearcher, Department of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Sciences, University of Padua Medical School, Padua, Italy
