Tips and Tricks in Imaging Your Patients With Valvular Heart Disease – Aortic Stenosis, Mitral Regurgitation and Tricuspid Regurgitation
Published: 24 June 2021
Part 1 | Session 1 Welcome and Introduction Jose Luis Zamorano, Rebecca T Hahn, Patrizio Lancellotti, Martin Swaans, Philippe Pibarot
In this on-demand programme, a world-renowned faculty led by Programme Chair Prof José Luis Zamorano (University Complutense, Spain) and Scientific Director Dr Rebecca T Hahn (New York-Presbyterian / Columbia University Medical Center, US), explore tips, tricks and expert insight to optimise echocardiographic image acquisition strategies to support earlier diagnosis and improved patient outcomes.
Combining presentations and opinion from Dr Philippe Pibarot (Laval University, Canada), Prof Patrizio Lancellotti (University of Liège, Belgium), and Dr Martin Swaans (St Antonius Hospital Nieuwegein, the Netherlands), this programme addresses key issues including how to do an aortic valve echo, what to look for, how to interpret results; how to optimise a mitral valve echo; why doing tricuspid imaging is difficult, how to do a tricuspid valve echo (with various parameters) – and many more.

Head of the Cardiology Department
In 1970, Professor Lancellotti was born in Charleroi, Belgium to parents of Neapolitan origin.7, 8 He studied chemistry at the University of Labour Paul Pastur and graduated as a technician in 1988.7 It was his fascination with the heart and its physiology that drew him to cardiology and he has “always found that the heart was a noble organ.”9
Alongside Professor Gach and Dr Robinet, he implanted the first Micra™ (the world's smallest pacemaker) in Wallonia in 2017 and it placed the CHU de Liège/University Hospital of Liège among the centres of European leaders in cardiology.7
