Foundation Echo

24-26 November 2021

Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Stoke

Registration Open

This course is intended for physiologists and physicians who are starting out in echocardiography.  No previous experience of echocardiography is assumed, however some previous scanning experience would be helpful.                               

The morning  lecture course will cover the basics of cardiac 

anatomy and physics. The normal echocardiographic examination

will be covered in detail before discussing echocardiographic 

findings in acquired heart disease and simple congenital heart 

disease. The applications of 2D, colour and spectral Doppler 

will be explored.                                


The afternoons are devoted to small group practical scanning sessions with an expert echocardiographer assigned to each group.  Experience of scanning both normal volunteers and patients will be available.
