Course description: 

Live 3D TEE provides a novel imaging method to visualize cardiac structures. This modality has enabled us to readily diagnose disease of cardiac structures and guide interventions when necessary.

During this two-day course, participants will be introduced to 3D image acquisition in structural heart disease. Non-invasive and invasive cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists and sonographers will gain insight into clinical applications of this technique and a process to incorporate this technology into daily clinical practice. A broad spectrum of clinical applications of 3D TEE will be covered, including 3D assessment of aortic valve and mitral valve (especially mechanism and assessment of mitral regurgitation). There will be an emphasis on the use of Live 3D TEE for guidance during catheter- based interventions such as TAVR, Mitraclip, mitral valvuloplasty, closure of PFOs and paravalvular leaks as well as its role in the operating room.

The first day of this two-day course will be taught by Dr. Raj Janardhanan. 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.
