5th European Echocardiography Course on Congenital Heart Disease
6 – 9 October 2010
UCL Institute of Child Health, London
The Imaging Working Group of the Association of European Paediatric Cardiology (AEPC) in collaboration with the Working Group of Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association of Echocardiography will organise the 5th European Echocardiography Course in Congenital Heart Disease this time in London, from Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th October 2010.
The course will provide both theoretical and practical review of echocardiographic techniques used in the current era, including Tissue Doppler Imaging, speckle tracking in both 2D and 3D echocardiography and real time 3D echocardiography.
For the first time, there will be three parallel hands-on sessions on:
- Transthoracic live scanning with patients
- Transoesophageal scanning with simulators
- 3D datasets postprocessing
As in the previous courses, a forum of distinguished speakers and appreciated teachers from all over Europe and overseas will share their experience with the audience.
The number of participants is limited to 150, therefore we advise applicants to book early to guarantee a place on the course.
