Program Overview

Cardiovascular imaging plays a vital role in the management of the cardiovascular patient. Knowledge of various imaging modalities is critical to understanding their advantages, limitations and appropriate
utilization in patients with ischemic heart disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, cardiomyopathy, masses, valvular disease, and aortic disease. This symposium offers the opportunity, in addition to didactic lectures by world experts, to have small-group tutorials in each imaging modality, live cases, and demonstration of heart anatomy to better visualize and understand cardiac and valvular structure and enhance correlations with cardiac imaging.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is: Cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, internists, anesthesiologists,
radiologists, critical care physicians, advanced cardiovascular practitioners, fellows in training, cardiovascular nurses, sonographers, cardiovascular imaging technologists in areas such as echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT and cardiac MRI.

Educational Objectives

  • Discuss new developments in multimodality imaging
  • Compare the different types of imaging for the assessment of ischemia to determine which is the most beneficial for the specified clinical question
  • Evaluate valve and heart morphology and relate them to valvular imaging and interventions
  • Describe the timing and interventions in common valvular disorders
  • Discuss how imaging can be utilized to differentiate cardiomyopathies and masses
  • Explain the role of imaging in vascular disease and diseases of the aorta
  • Summarize the most common congenital heart disease disorders seen in the adult and their salient imaging features
