What you will learn

Course description: 

This module is designed to provide the foundation for the understanding of myocardial mechanics including rotation, twist, untwisting and torsion. Emphasis is on the heart’s fiber architecture and its interaction, creating overall contraction and relaxation. Case examples include a comparison of healthy and diseased hearts 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 heart architecture and its contribution to overall performance
  • Describe how myocardial mechanics are calculated and displayed by echocardiography
  • Demonstrate a systematic echocardiographic approach to rotation, twist, untwisting and torsion
