I invite you to attend the 18th Annual Canadian Society of Weekend from 7 to 9 April, 2016 at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel. We have developed an exciting educational program for you.
The Annual Canadian Echo Weekend is designed around your needs and requests over the past seventeen meetings. We will focus on common clinical problems encountered in your practice and the important role that echocardiography plays in diagnosis and patient management. Novel and evolving technologies to enhance your diagnostic capabilities and improve patient care will be highlighted.
We are excited to bring to you this year a new 3D Echocardiography Made Simple! A Hands- on Analysis Workshop. These ticketed sessions will focus on the analysis of 3D echocardiographic datasets. The aim of the workshop is to review 3D cropping methods and currently available left ventricular and mitral valve analysis packages. We have recruited Drs. Igal Sebag and Wendy Tsang to lead these sessions using equipment from GE and Philips. The sessions are limited to 10 people each to allow sufficient interaction and support.
In addition to top-tier Canadian speakers, this year's guest speakers include Dr. Gilbert Habib, President of European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) who will present on Infective Endocarditis: A Changing Disease and Dr. Vera Rigolin, Vice President of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) will be presenting on Appropriate Use vs. Clinical Indications.
The faculty is looking forward to seeing you again this year at the 18th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Describe the current role and application of echocardiography in patients with suspected and overt cardiac disease
- Identify how novel and evolving echocardiography techniques can be applied to the clinical practice of echocardiography
- Describe how echocardiography integrates with other cardiac imaging modalities to optimally evaluate the patient with suspected or confirmed cardiovascular disease
