Midlands Echo*

Foundation Echocardiography

This course is intended for physiologists and physicians who are starting out in echocardiography.  No previous experience of echocardiography is assumed, however some previous scanning experience would be helpful.

The morning lecture course will cover the basics of cardiac anatomy and physics. The normal echocardiographic examination will be covered in detail before discussing echocardiographic findings in acquired heart disease and simple congenital heart disease. The applications of 2D, colour and spectral Doppler will be explored.

The afternoons are devoted to small group (5 participants maximum) practical scanning sessions with an expert echocardiographer assigned to each group.  Experience of scanning both normal volunteers and patients will be available.

Venue: Moat House Hotel, Stoke on Trent

Duration: 3 Days

Tuition Fee:  £780 inc VAT

CME Credits: 1 credit per complete hour of actual tuition
