5th North American Echocardiography Course on Congenital Heart Disease


Presented by Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford CME | Stanford Medicine and endorsed by the California Chapter of the American College of Cardiology.

This symposium will provide an introduction to pediatric and congenital echocardiography and the imaging of congenital heart diseases. It takes a unique approach that combines learning cardiac morphology from pathologic specimens and relating this knowledge to echocardiographic evaluation, both preoperatively and postoperatively for patients with congenital heart disease. The main goal is to improve the knowledge and competence of physicians and sonographers who perform and/or interpret echocardiograms in newborns and children with suspected or actual congenital heart diseases and those who perform echocardiographic studies in adults with repaired congenital heart disease.
