The 31st Annual Echocardiography in Pediatric and Adult Congenital Heart Disease Symposium will use a clinical case based format to highlight the use of echocardiography and other cardiac imaging techniques to recognize, understand, and manage patients with congenital heart disease. This four-day symposium is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy, clinical aspects, imaging, and management of patients with congenital heart disease. The symposium will have a distinguished faculty of pediatric and adult congenital cardiologists, sonographers, cardiac pathologists and cardiac surgeons with expertise in treatment, diagnosis, and management of patients with congenital heart disease. The symposium will consist of lectures, video examples, workshops, and panel discussions.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Demonstrate enhanced knowledge of anatomy and physiology of common congenital cardiac conditions as well as the surgical/interventional procedures used to treat them
- Interpret 2-D echo/Doppler hemodynamics in the setting of congenital heart disease
- Recognize limitations of echocardiography and other imaging techniques
- Integrate the most up-to-date echocardiographic and multimodality imaging techniques into patient management
