Ultrasound Solutions Corp. is pleased to present another ECHO CME Free Learning Session in our series of Wharton’s Wednesdays. Dr. Ronald Wharton will conduct a discussion on cardiomyopathies and systemic diseases affecting the structure and function of the heart on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM (EDT). This free event has been approved for 1 SDMS CME credit.
ECHO CME Course Description
Are you well acquainted with different types of cardiomyopathies and their appearance using 2-D, M-mode, and Doppler echocardiographic imaging? This one hour event will cover the sonographic appearance of non-ischemic causes of abnormal cardiac morphology/physiology and help familiarize attendees with the impact of these conditions on the structure and/or function of the heart.
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- Categorize non-ischemic causes of abnormal cardiac morphology and function, both genetic and acquired
- Recognize abnormalities in function that cannot easily be explained by coronary artery disease
- Identify abnormalities in valvular heart disease which can occur secondary to cardiomyopathies
