Canadian Society of Echocardiography Meeting 2015


Letter from the President of the Canadian Society of Echocardiography

Dear colleague:

I invite you to attend the 17th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend on April 23-25, 2015 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 sixteen 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 have included many useful echo topics, such as, the new chamber quantification recommendations, echo and ACC/AHA valvular guidelines, echo in valvular interventions, the roles of echo in cardio-oncology, and stress echo in various clinical settings.

New this year will be an Echo Fellow Research Session: we are excited about this new session.

This year's guest speaker, Dr. Neil Weissman, President of the American Society of Echocardiography, will be presenting A Tale of a Cardiovascular Imaging Clinical Trialist: How Echo Can Help Drive Innovation and Safety.

The faculty is looking forward to seeing you again this year at the 17th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend!

President, Canadian Society of Echocardiography
