We look forward to welcoming you to the 2020 first edition of the Intensive Course on 3D Echocardiography, which will be held at the Istituto Auxologico Italiano, IRCCS – San Luca Hospital in Milan, Italy, on 25-29 May.
This is a 4-day course entirely dedicated to 3D TTE and TEE, including learning labs (morning) and theoretical lectures (afternoon). The course has been designed for cardiologists with advanced training (level 3) in conventional echocardiography and limited experience with 3D echo, aiming to adopt this technique in their daily routine practice.
This course is geared also to other practitioners (sonographers, cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, anesthesiologists, pediatricians etc) who want to improve their knowledge and practical skills in 3D echo and keep up to date with the ever-expanding technological advancements in the field.
This intensive course will include many clinical cases and unique examples illustrated by 2D/3D TTE and TEE from our personal collection, and interactive discussions on hot topics, pitfalls of 2D vs 3D echo and controversial issues.
We have run this course 3 times per year between 2012-2019 in Padua, and the feedback has been very positive. The course is small enough to be friendly, effective and interactive, and has attracted so far over 400 colleagues from all over the world. The scientific content of the lectures is updated every year to reflect the latest guidelines, research and software developments.
Two practical learning labs using GE and Philips/TomTec latest technology and software packages will be run in parallel, allowing you to learn the specific knobology and practice with the equipment you are using daily in your own lab. Places for the learning labs are limited to max 8 participants/group, each participant having a dedicated workstation with prerecorded cases including both 3D TTE and TEE data sets of different pathologies.
To support your training, a complimentary print-out of the most relevant guidelines, as well as clinical reviews and research papers on 3D echo (including reference values for each cardiac structure) from our publication record, will be included into the registration package.
We look forward to meeting you in Milan and welcoming you in our rapidly expanding and friendly community of 3D echo addicts!!
