What you will learn

Course description: 

This virtual course will be taught by Jeffrey Hill, BS, ACS, FASE. The clinical application of strain imaging is complex and requires a thorough understanding of the technology for accurate diagnosis. This course is the first-of-its-kind to address reproducibility between the cardiac sonographer in the measurement of global longitudinal strain imaging (GLS). Statistical analysis will include observer and test-retest variability.  The attendee will be provided a “GLS Toolbox” that includes statistical worksheets, protocols, and technical tips on improving strain imaging as part of quality control in the Echo Lab. In addition, there will be an analysis of GLS in complex diseases. The program will extend to lectures and technical tips and emphasis reproducibility and quality analysis.



Course objectives: 

  • Describe statistical models appropriate for strain imaging
  • Analyze complex cases in patients with myocardial disease
  • Demonstrate a systematic approach to improve accuracy and reproducibility in the measurements of GLS
