What you will learn

Course description: 

Live 3D TEE provides a novel imaging method to visualize the Mitral Valve. This modality aids clinicians in diagnosing disease of the mitral valve and guide interventions when necessary.

During this course, participants will be introduced to 3D image acquisition for mitral valve disease. Non-invasive and invasive cardiologists, sonographers, cardiac anesthesiologists and cardiac surgeons will gain insight into clinical applications of this technique and a process to incorporate this technology into daily clinical practice. A broad spectrum of clinical applications of 3D TEE will be covered, including 3D assessment of the normal and abnormal mitral valve. There will focus on how to acquire and display 3D datasets of the mitral valve. There will be special emphasis on the use of Live 3D TEE for pre-procedural screening as well as the intra-procedural guidance during catheter- based interventions such as mitra-clip, trans-septal puncture, mitral valvuloplasty, closure of prosthetic mitral paravalvular leaks. Challenging 3D-TEE cases of mitral valve endocarditis will also be discussed.

This course will be taught by Dr. Raj Janardhanan. Educational material will be presented in the form of lectures, case presentations and informal discussions on Live 3D TEE and its clinical application. 



Course objectives: 

Upon successful completion of this program, attendees should be able to:

  • Appreciate the incremental value of Live 3D TEE in evaluating normal mitral anatomy and defining pathology. Integrating 2D with 3D imaging
  • Evaluate the mitral valve using various 3D modes. Display the “Surgeon’s View”
  • Discuss mechanisms of mitral regurgitation
  • Appreciate the use of Live 3D TEE for guidance during catheter- based interventions (such as mitral clips, mitral valvuloplasty, closure of prosthetic mitral paravalvular leaks)
  • Discuss the advantages and limitations of Live 3D TEE in imaging the mitral valve​
  • Discuss integrating Live 3D TEE into everyday clinical practice​
