GE HealthCare presents a video series comprising 10 episodes, starting from basics and pitfalls, followed by dedicated sessions with a variety of clinical use cases. Each session is divided into two sections: a presentation of the topic, followed by discussions between renowned key opinion leaders who share their experience, tips and tricks.
Dr Christos G Mihos (Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami Beach, FL) outlines the basics and applications of strain echocardiography. The series addresses pertinent topics including quantitative evaluation of myocardial strain, ventricular anatomy, architecture and deformation, ventricular longitudinal strain mechanics and left ventricular strain versus ejection fraction.
This video series will deliver best-in-class, practical-based education, including insightful and engaging discussions among global faculty.
