7th European Echocardiography Course in Congenital Heart Disease
The 7th European Echocardiography Course in Congenital Heart Disease will be organised in
Barcelona, from Wednesday 3th to Saturday 6th October 2012.
This course provides a thorough overview of Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease and is aimed at Pediatric Cardiologists, Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease Specialists and Echocardiography Technicians working with Congenital Heart Disease patients.
The programme strongly builds on the side-by-side comparison of morphology and imaging and discusses the major abnormalities found in clinical practice. The course prepares for the accreditation exam for ‘Congenital Heart Disease Echocardiography’ organised by the EAE/AEPC.
Additionally, we will organise the 1st Symposium on Fetal Cardiac Function in conjunction with the EEC in Barcelona, on Tuesday 2nd of October 2012.
In this symposium, the basic principles of cardiac function and deformation will be explained and the techniques for measuring this in the fetus will be presented and discussed by experts in the field. Additionally, the changes in pathological situation will be highlighted.
