Workshop: 2D/M-Mode Echo and Cardiac Doppler/Color

Moderator: Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute


Sonographers and other medical professionals learning how to perform adult echocardiography examinations. Physicians at an entry level of interpreting exams. Physician participants may include (but are not limited to) those involved with: internal medicine, radiology, cardiology, family practice, emergency medicine and critical care       

Course Objectives:


At the completion of this program, the participant should be able to:

1. Identify and analyze the basics of cardiac anatomy/physiology. 
2. Perform a routine 2D/M-Mode/Doppler (pulsed-wave, continuous wave and Color Flow imaging) echocardiographic examination and appropriate measurements.
3. Identify normal/abnormal characteristics of 2D cardiac anatomy and explain the role of cardiac Doppler and the necessary qualitative/ quantitative measurements.
4. Discuss the U/S findings associated with valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, ischemic heart disease (CAD), pericardial disease, cardiac masses and LV systolic and diastolic function.
5. Assess cardiac Doppler/color indications, applications, normal/abnormal waveform characteristics, Doppler measurements and color characteristics in the adult patient.
6. Discuss and apply the guidelines for structuring a dictated Echocardiography report.
7. Increase knowledge and confidence to perform and/or interpret echocardiography examinations.
8. Apply the information discussed in a clinical setting, under supervised conditions until an accepted level of proficiency has been achieved.
