This three-day course is designed to provide a solid foundation in Live 3Dechocardiography for physicians and cardiac sonographers who are new 3D users.
This course provides a spectrum of situations both physicians and sonographers can use and reference. By increasing familiarity with clinical applications of Live 3D echocardiography, students develop a comfort level to make 3D part of their scanning protocols.
During this course, students will learn to manipulate 3D datasets containing actual heart disease. Guided workshops and instructor demonstrations compliment detailed presentations on the theory and clinical application of Live 3D echocardiography.
The first day of this three-day course focuses on 3D image acquisition, manipulation, cropping and quantification. Students will have ample opportunity for hands-on experience acquiring images with the ultrasound system and becoming familiar with the acquisition options in Live 3D.
On the second day students will focus on analysis using datasets and QLAB quantification software. Workshops will offer step by step training in cropping and measuring real world examples of clinically relevant datasets.
The final day completes 3D quantification, discusses 3D data management and best practices, and allows for clinically focused scanning time to hone your new skills in Live 3D echo.
The curriculum offers hands-on scanning, and self-guided workshops in which step by step directions are provided which can then be used as a reference in the workplace. Proctors are on hand during workshops to offer assistance.
