ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is pleased to present another Free Learning Session in our series of Wharton’s Wednesdays Dr. RONALD WHARTON will conduct a discussion on the often bewildering assessment of diastolic function. Join us for Demystifying Diastology Dilemmas.
Are you baffled by Diastology? This session will provide a breakdown of the ASE guidelines to help you learn the “ins and outs” of assessing diastolic function. Case studies and echocardiographic images will be utilized to illustrate key clinical points.
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- State the rationale for using the assessment of left ventricular filling pressures
- Identify the uses and limitations of the various parameters for assessing left ventricular diastolic function
- Discuss the “Diastolic Stress Test” and it’s use in the evaluation of patients with unexplained dyspnea
