What you will learn

Course description: 

Assessment of right ventricular (RV) systolic performance has been limited to conventional echocardiographic techniques such as M-mode and TDI. Speckle Tracking Echocardiography (STE) strain imaging may improve the overall assessment and understanding of RV performance. This module will include an introduction to myocardial mechanics of the RV and the application of STE strain imaging. Case studies in various pathologies 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.
