Overall Objectives


To describe the current and future applications of 3D echocardiography in pediatric congenital and acquired heart disease.


To describe the current role of 3D echocardiography in surgical and catheter interventional planning and in evaluating the success of the intervention.


Individual session objectives: 

Session 1:  Keynote talk and 3D Echo for Function


Keynote talk is by a world recognized expert in 3DE and its utility in cardiac interventions. This will outline this new and exciting direction for 3DE. 

  1. To describe the utility, advantage, and limitations 3DE assessment of ventricular function, such as auto segmentation, volumetric and strain


Session 2: Assessment of the Normal & Abnormal AV valve & Surgical Integration 

  1. To classify the anatomy and function of the tricuspid and mitral valves and mechanisms of valve dysfunction as demonstrated by 3D echocardiography
  2. To describe the use of 3DE in intervention 

Session 3:  3D Assessment of Simple and Complex Cardiac Outflows 

  1. To describe the additional anatomical details that 3D echo can provide in assessing congenital heart disease associated with outflow tract pathology, aortic valve repair and ventricular septal defects 
  1. To demonstrate how 3D echo can contribute to the assessment of the AVSD and its variants
  2. To establish the role of 3D echo planning surgical intervention and in post-surgical surveillance, including what a surgeon requires from 3DE 

Session 4: 3D Echo Role in Function and Intervention and Future Directions 

  1. To describe the anatomy of complex lesions such as DORV and straddling valves
  2. To outline upcoming technologies in 3DE 

Hands-on sessions include learning techniques in acquiring 3D echo data sets through hands-on imaging demonstrations, and to develop an understanding of offline analysis with manipulation of these datasets in the normal heart and the heart with structural or functional pathology.
