4D Echocardiography is rapidly evolving giving new perspectives in the diagnosis and management of cardiac diseases. With the new 4D echo softwares and machines we can enhance our self-confidence and credibility in a wide spectrum of structural heart diseases. Starting with heart failure patients where accurately we can provide data about ventricular volumes and contractility and going further to valvulopathies where we can visualize and demonstrate in real time all the pathology. That way all diagnostic questions are more precise answered and the management of these patients becomes easier.

Our hands-on intensive echo course aims at giving all the needed tools for everyday routine use of 4D echocardiography in our labs. All participants at the end of the course will learn how to acquire and analyze volumes and ejection fraction for left and right ventricle and be able as well to accurately demonstrate and analyze all valve abnormalities.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Greece this October.
