Course Information

This traditional postgraduate course will concentrate on the latest advances in cardiac ultrasound. It will highlight the new
technological developments, such as 3D echocardiography and deformation imaging. There will be a strong focus on
echocardiographic solutions for common and rare clinical problems.

Specifically, heart valve disease and cardiomyopathies and heart failure will be discussed, with emphasis on improved
quantification of aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation. Also, the pivotal clinical role of the modern echocardiographer, particularly in the emergency room and the cardiac catheterization laboratory, will be addressed.

An important highlight is the interactive discussions between participants and the international faculty.
