What you will learn

Course description: 

Assessment of cardiac volume and ejection fraction (EF) is integral to cardiac diagnosis and patient management. The QLAB utilizes Anatomical Intelligence A.I that is featured in the Auto 2D quantification (a2DQ) Q-App to detect borders for the left ventricle and atrium using speckle tracking. Auto Tissue Motion Annular Displacement (aTMAD) provides global cardiac quantification based on tracking of the cardiac valve’s annular motion when it may be difficult to accurately obtain a border traced EF. Color Kinesis (CK) analysis is used to apply a color overlay to mark changes in endocardial border position or to identify and quantify valve annular motion during the cardiac cycle. This virtual class will be an overview of how to use the a2DQ application in the QLAB On and Off-cart to provide rapid access to 2D EF and volumes and annular displacement.



Course objectives: 

• Explain and discuss the function of the Auto 2D quantification (a2DQ) Q-App for automated border detection analysis of 2D echo images

• Perform the steps essential to a2DQ workflow for automated Ejection Fraction/Fractional Area Change

• Perform the steps essential to the Auto Tissue Motion Annular Displacement (aTMAD) work flow.

• Explain the setting preferences for the selected workflow.

• Demonstrate the correct placement of the reference points for Auto 2D Quantification

• Describe the data that is included in the Cardiac Function Report.
