Program Overview

State-of-the-Art Echocardiography is a premier educational venue for cardiovascular ultrasound in clinical practice. This superbly rated meeting is filled to capacity year after year. Although the course is refocused yearly to ensure the most up to date information, topics will include quantitative echocardiography, valvular and ischemic heart disease, stress/contrast echocardiography, advances in imaging in coronary disease, and myopericardial diseases. A full-day Heart Valve Symposium will be held on Sunday, February 22, 2015, which will include echo innovations and applications for clinical practice.

Participants should have a practical knowledge of echocardiography to fully benefit from this program. The setting is ideal for participants to bring their families and take advantage of some vacation time.

The American Society of Echocardiography is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Individual computer workstations are provided for hands on instruction.  Each participant will learn how to quantitate fundamental aspects of clinical echocardiography. Topics include:  Chamber Quantification, Basic Doppler Calculations, Diastolic Function, Aortic Valves, Mitral Valves, and 3D.  The small group environment allows the opportunity for nearly private instruction from top practitioners in the field.  This workshop requires separate registration.
