ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is pleased to welcome back Richard Palma, BS, ACS, RCS, RDCS, FACVP, FSDMS, FASE, Program Director at Duke School of Medicine’s Cardiac Sonography Program, for a comprehensive session comparing Echocardiography to other cardiac imaging methods.

Course Description:

When a patient needs a cardiac diagnosis, how do we know which type of imaging modality will yield the best and most diagnostic information? This lecture will discuss the current use of different types of cardiac imaging and compare them to Echocardiography. A case study approach will be made to demonstrate the value of the different imaging methods when cardiovascular pathology is the focus. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit, provided one is present for the entire event)

Course Objectives:  Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of imaging cardiac structures through various imaging modalities.
  • Compare cardiac ultrasound to different imaging modalities.
  • State how different cardiac imaging modalities can assist in making a diagnosis.
