Beyond Pretty Pictures 2018 - 3D Pediatric Echocardiography 

will be held in Colorado this year.

Please click HERE for the most recent brochure.

Needs Statement
1% of all children are born with some form of congenital heart disease. Imaging in two-dimensional echocardiography (heart ultrasound) is routine for congenital heart disease. Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography can enhance the understanding of congenital heart disease. Training in 3D echocardiography can help sonographers and physicians taking care of congenital heart disease patients better assist in accurate diagnosis, surgical planning, and catheter interventions.
Overview and Target Audience
This workshop will provide a detailed review of the clinical applications of 3D echocardiography in the evaluation of pediatric congenital & acquired heart disease. It will address assessment of structural pathology, evolution & mechanisms of valve failure, myocardial function, fusion imaging, and 3D echocardiography guidance on catheter intervention. Attendees will learn practical clinical applications of 3D echocardiography in pre and post-surgical assessments and planning. Future directions in this exciting and rapidly evolving field will also be explored. This conference will be of interest to physicians, sonographers, and healthcare providers who take care of patients with congenital heart disease.
Educational Objectives
Upon conclusion of the conference, participants should be able to:
•Recognize basic principles and pitfalls of 3D echocardiography
•Describe 3D echocardiography best practices in simple and complex congenital heart defects
•Demonstrate hands-on 3D image acquisition capabilities
•Perform post-processing analysis of congenital heart disease
•Identify the role of 3D echocardiography in catheter and operational interventions
Other highlights of the course:
•Catered breakfast, lunch, and snacks
•Live scanning on pediatric cardiac patients
•Opportunity to network with echocardiography colleagues
