179 Echocardiography Conference: "Poor function" (081117)
The leamer should be able to improve technical perfonmance of echocardiograms in congenital heart disease. They should be able to further their understanding of complex physiology and the appropriate questions to answer with the study. In addition, emphasis is placed on medical andlor surgical management as well as further studies (cardiac catheterization, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography scan) that may be needed. Information to be obtained on followup echocardiograms will also be reviewed.
These sessions are designed to improve the technical performance and interpretation of echocardiograms in complex congenital and acquired heart disease. Case studies are presented, followed by discussion of new noninvasive methods of evaluation and medical and/or surgical management options. All attendees are invited to participate in the discussion.
