PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Cardiovascular imaging plays a vital role in the management of the cardiovascular patient. Knowledge of various imaging modalities is critical to understanding their advantages, limitations and appropriate utilization in patients with ischemic heart disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, cardiomyopathy, masses, valvular disease, and aortic disease.

This conference offers the opportunity, in addition to didactic lectures by world experts, to participate in small-group tutorials in each imaging modality. Demonstrations of heart anatomy assist in visualizing and understanding cardiac and valvular structure to enhance correlations with cardiac imaging.

 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to: 

  • Discuss new developments in multimodality imaging
  • Compare the different types of imaging for the assessment of ischemia to determine which is the most beneficial for the specified clinical question
  • Evaluate valve and heart morphology and relate them to valvular imaging and interventions
  • Describe the timing and interventions in common valvular disorders
  • Discuss how imaging can be utilized to differentiate cardiomyopathies and masses
  • Explain the role of imaging in vascular disease and diseases of the aorta
  • Summarize the most common congenital heart disease disorders seen in the adult and their salient imaging features

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

Cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, internists, anesthesiologists, radiologists, critical care physicians, advanced cardiovascular practitioners, fellows in training, nurse practitioners, nurses, sonographers, cardiovascular imaging technologists in areas such as echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT and cardiac MRI.
