Echo Hawaii presents the latest information on established and emerging cardiovascular ultrasound technologies. Expert U.S. and international faculty discuss state-of-the-art technologies with a particular focus on how they can be effectively applied in the clinical setting. Case-based approaches are used to discuss new and established uses of echocardiography for diagnosis and guiding management in patients with a broad array of cardiovascular conditions. Topics include: advanced assessment of systolic and diastolic function, 3D/4D imaging, adult congenital heart disease, contemporary approaches to valve disease, advanced anatomy, ischemic heart disease and aortic pathology.
Basic and advanced echo techniques for quantitative assessment of systolic and diastolic function
Echocardiography for decision-making and interventional guidance in valvular heart disease
Contrast for improved echo quality: endocardial border detection and beyond
How to integrate new echo technology (3D, strain, torsion) into a busy clinical lab
Role of echocardiography in managing cardiomyopathies
The multimodality imaging lab: what is the role of echo?
The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) is a professional organization of physicians, cardiovascular sonographers, nurses and scientists involved in echocardiography, the use of ultrasound to image the heart and cardiovascular system. The organization was founded in 1975 and is the largest international organization for cardiac imaging.
