REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT
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 sonographic appearance and findings in adult congenital heart disease.
The population of adult patients with Congenital Heart Disease is growing every year, but many Sonographers may not be that familiar with what these conditions look like in the adult patient. This one hour event will cover 2D and Doppler findings, as well as artifacts associated with both commonly seen and uncommonly found congenital abnormalities outside of the childhood population. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- Identify common and uncommon congenital abnormalities which can escape detection during childhood
- Recognize artifacts which may be caused by congenital abnormalities
- Correlate spectral Doppler findings with the physiology of certain common congenital abnormalities
