Echocardiography Conference

Milwaukee, WI US
December 4, 2012 to December 3, 2013

This educational series is designed to examine the diagnosis and treatment of disease states that are studied in the Echocardiography laboratory.  Patient case studies will be presented and discussed, from the point of admission or symptom onset. To diagnosis, to the intervention performed, concluding with the patient outcome.  Sessions include discussion of the improvement of echocardiographic image acquisition including technique, protocols, and enhancement which will lead to an accurate diagnosis.  Our goal is to illustrate best practice and standardize imaging protocols.

Patients presenting with suspected cardiovascular disease can be challenging to diagnose and treat.  The department of cardiology recognizes this challenge and wishes to offer a venue for providers to participate in case review, with an end goal of consistently delivering evidence based practice.
