What you will learn

Course description: 

Course Description: The attendee will learn how “speckles” are created in the ultrasound field and how speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) was validated. The technical pearls and caveats when applying STE strain imaging will be discussed.  In addition, case studies along with waveforms and strain parametric bullseyes will be analyzed.

Virtual training is a facilitator-led, live online learning event that is delivered in a virtual environment. Participants can be geographically dispersed and also individually connected. Each learner uses their own computer or other compatible device. Virtual training is synchronous, meaning that participants are connected at the same time as the facilitator. Philips virtual training events typically range from 60-120 minutes in length with a maximum of 10 participants. This socially engaging, purposefully-designed training allows participants the same quality education of an instructor-led classroom without the need or expense of traveling.



Course objectives: 

  • List the fundamentals of speckles and their relationship to STE
  • Describe how STE is calculated and applied for the assessment of heart function
  • Demonstrate a systematic echocardiographic approach to STE
