What you will learn

Course description: 

Live 3D TEE provides cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and cardiac surgeons with innovative, inspiring and realistic views to aid in patient care. This course provides a practical introduction to Live 3D TEE.

This two-day course is designed to provide healthcare providers with a comprehensive view of the use of Live 3D TEE. Three dimensional TEE will be discussed for all cardiology uses. Emphasis will be placed on mitral and aortic valvular disease, although all four valves will be thoroughly discussed. The use of 3D TEE for planning TAVR as well as during the implantation of TAVR will be highlighted. Focus will be placed on interventions for structural heart disease. Quantification of valvular disease, particularly mitral will be discussed including QLAB use.

The first day of this two-day course will be taught by Dr. Ed Gill. Educational material will be presented in the form of lectures, case presentations and informal discussions on Live 3D TEE and its clinical application. On the second day, the Philips ultrasound clinical education team will assist in instructing participants on analyzing, manipulating and cropping of 3D data sets using the QLAB software. Attendees will have ample opportunity to develop hands-on experience with QLAB.

At the end of this course the attendees will be able to appreciate the principles of 3D image acquisition, optimization and interpretation. The attendees will also be introduced to basic quantitative application of 3D echocardiographic data and practical application during clinical situations.

This course has computer training sessions supporting both QLAB 9 (iE33) and QLAB 10 (EPIQ). The guest lecturers content is applicable to both ultrasound systems.
