The 35th Annual Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease – Special Emphasis on Adult Congenital Heart Disease Including Uses of Multimodality Imaging Symposium will highlight the use of echocardiography and other cardiac imaging techniques to recognize, understand, and manage patients with congenital heart disease using a case based format. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of imaging techniques in the care of the adult with CHD. This four-day symposium is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy, clinical aspects, imaging, and management of patients with congenital heart disease. The symposium will include case discussions, didactic seminars, anatomic and imaging correlations, discussion of multimodal imaging and scanning seminars to illustrate the impact of cardiac imaging on treatment, diagnosis, and management of patients with congenital heart disease.

The pediatric echocardiography lab at Children's Hospital Colorado is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Pediatric Echocardiography Review from October 4-6, 2019! This 3 day course is perfect for the adult cardiology sonographer who is interested in learning about congenital heart disease. Offering up to 18.5 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 credit for CME, this course features a combination of didactic sessions (including an audience response system), live scanning sessions, and small group discussions. Registration is limited to 64 participants to ensure a 2:1 ratio of student:instructor for live scanning sessions, which will provide the opportunity to practice scanning children with normal anatomy as well as congenital heart defects.

Previous participants of the course have said:

"I walked away from this conference more confident and a better scanner."

"I enjoyed sitting one-on-one with the Cardiologist and going over case studies and having smaller groups."

"I loved everything about this conference. I went in knowing I was interested in pediatric echo, but after this conference I am going to work toward making the transition and becoming a pediatric echo tech."

Registration for the course is now open. Please visit childrenscolorado.org/ce and navigate to October on the CME calendar to register. The $425 registration includes up to 18.5 hours CME, breakfast, lunch, and snack breaks, a binder with printouts of all talks for taking notes, 2 live scanning sessions, and a social outing the evening of October 4th with drinks and appetizers.

Please contact Dawn Park (dawn.park@childrenscolorado.org, 720-777-8395) for any questions or further details of the course. We hope to see you this fall!

During this 3 day CME course, experts in the field of cardiovascular genetics detail the important role of genetics, genomics, and pharmacogenetics in the diagnosis, risk stratification, and treatment of diseases affecting the heart and the blood vessels.

Topics covered will include, Genetics Genomics 101, pharmacogenetics, polygenic risk scores, variant interpretation, the molecular autopsy, and the diagnostic, prognostic, & therapeutic implications of genetic testing for patients with congenital heart disease, long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, hypertrophic/dilated/arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, coronary heart disease, hyperlipidemias, heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, cardiac amyloid, and the aortopathies.

Unique Features: Audience response system to enhance immediate feedback. Easy access to faculty members. One-on-one interaction. Efforts will be made to introduce the clinical applications using new technology, however, there is no hands-on experience provided. Self-assessment questions to gauge outcome. A special workshop will be conducted to analyze a genetic test report and to comment on the significance of genetic test results from your patients.

This advanced course is designed to provide the clinician and sonographer with an update on transthoracic, stress, and transesophageal echocardiography as well as cardiac CT and MRI. It is not a "how-to" course, but instead will concentrate on the application of these modalities to clinical decision making.

The program consists primarily of clinical cases which illustrate the problems cardiovascular specialists commonly encounter. Multiple choice questions addressing the clinical utility and limitations of echocardiography follow each case. Utilization of cardiac CT and MRI is also incorporated into the cases. In addition, faculty presents “rapid fire” and “unknown” cases.

Special breakout sessions are devoted to the interpretation of Doppler hemodynamics, diastolic function, stress echocardiography, congenital heart disease, interventional, heart failure, CT/MRI, and perioperative echocardiography.

Attendees have the opportunity to share an interesting case with the faculty and audience. If you would like to share an interesting case, please make this available as an MPEG, AVI, or WMV file. The images should be deidentified. Please provide this case to the registration desk at check-in with a small written history of the patient.

This course is designed to encourage maximum audience participation and interaction with the faculty.

Join your colleagues for succinct didactics and interactive, case-based learning of the latest in clinical echocardiography. The program will present a variety of clinical problems and discuss the role of 2D/3D echo, Doppler modalities, strain imaging, flow quantitation, and contrast echo in the diagnosis and therapeutic guidance in a variety of clinical scenarios. In-depth discussion of the strengths of various echo techniques and parameters will be coupled with tips to avoid pitfalls. 

The conference will discuss the spectrum of valve disease – both common and uncommon, surgical and percutaneous interventions and complicated valve issues. Application of echo in aortic diseases, ischemic and non-ischemic myocardial disorders, acute and chronic heart failure, arrhythmic diseases, pericardial disorders and neoplastic pathology will be discussed with illustrative patient examples. 

Highlights include a wet lab workshop to demonstrate valvular anatomy and related structures, the application of echo in choosing and guiding catheter-based procedures, a Doppler workshop, a tour of case studies to teach nuances, an echo contest and a vascular ultrasound workshop.

The program seeks to address competence in using multiple echocardiographic techniques in assessment of cardiac structure and function in adult acquired or congenital heart disease. This will include concise, limited didactic lectures with major emphasis on a series of illustrative cases which will include audience response and discussion presented by echocardiography specialists which would lead to enhanced patient management. Workshops will be held to demonstrate the techniques for acquiring the echocardiographic data, especially with respect to new contemporary techniques such as strain imaging.
