Echo Alaska: Frontiers of Multimodality Imaging Including Echo, Cardiac CT and MRI

Find Mayo Clinic On Social Media 







This symposium is a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art echocardiography, cardiac CT, and MRI for a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders. We will emphasize new technologies and how to use imaging information for the care of your patients. Integration of Echo, CT, and MRI and their incremental value in clinical cardiology will be highlighted. An additional focus will be on the role of 2-D and 3-D echocardiography in guiding interventional therapies.

Unique to this course is live scanning of patients with various CV disorders. This session will emphasize the importance of comprehensive echocardiographic acquisition and management decision based on echocardiographic data.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this program, attendees should be able to:

  • Utilize clinical skills and the findings from echocardiography, nuclear imaging techniques, cardiac CT, and cardiac MRI to make clinical decisions regarding patient care

  • Integrate Doppler, 2-D, 3-D echocardiography for management of patients with valvular heart disease

  • Interpret information from Doppler, 2-D, and strain imaging to assist with management of patients with cardiomyopathy and heart failure patients including heart failure with preserved EF

  • Utilize information from cardiac CT and MRI to compliment echocardiography evaluation of patients with valvular disease, cardiomyopathy, and heart failure

  • Apply information from multimodality imaging to management of patients with congenital heart disease

  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of each imaging modality in a variety of clinical situations

Intended Audience

This conference is specifically designed for adult and congenital cardiovascular specialists, internists, anesthesiologists, critical care physicians, surgeons, and sonographers interested in the clinical application of echocardiography, cardiac CT, and MRI.
