This interactive course focuses on real-time training of physicians and other healthcare professionals in all aspects of vascular ultrasound from patient presentation to the final written report.

Lectures will cover all aspects of vascular anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, treatment
techniques and follow-up. Over ten hours of the course curriculum is dedicated to the hands-on
training. The participants will receive instruction through lectures, clinical vignettes and ten hours of
real- time ultrasound imaging of patients with a wide spectrum of vascular pathology.

During scanning participants will be taught appropriate use of the ultrasound machine with a focus
on image optimization. The protocols for the various tests will be explained in detail. Participants
will also receive tips on imaging, patient positioning and other maneuvers used to optimize results.
Techniques for venous access and tips to optimize ultrasound images during venous procedures will
be demonstrated.

At the conclusion of the course participants will be able to recognize the different types of vascular
pathology and be able to enhance their ability to perform the ultrasound scans.

This program will provide a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art 2-D, Doppler and transesophageal echocardiography with a strong emphasis on newer and more rapidly changing areas. The topics to be covered include diastology, ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, application of TEE in clinical practice, and cardiomyopathy.  The role of echo relative to the newer imaging modalities will be discussed. There are also afternoon workshops on heart failure, hemodynamics, congenital heart disease, and stress echo. The final workshop will include a series of clinical cases which will focus on integrating various imaging modalities to provide the highest quality of patient care. The course is designed for the clinician and sonographer who are actively involved in adult echocardiography and wish to gain additional practical experience in these specific areas. Daily reading sessions will provide the opportunity to interpret case studies and to compare and discuss diagnoses with the faculty. An integrated format combining theory and practice will be utilized. In the morning sessions, a traditional lecture series will present state-of-the-art information on selected topics. Application of the techniques to clinical practice will be emphasized.

Echo Fiesta is designed to provide a practical review of the current uses and limitations of 2-D echocardiography, Doppler and color flow imaging in the assessment of adult myocardial, ischemic, pericardial, and valvular heart disease. Traditional topics in the field of echocardiography including the assessment of systolic and diastolic function, quantitative Doppler, and stress echocardiography will be presented. In addition, newer techniques including 3-D echo and Doppler and 2-D strain imaging will be presented. The program will concentrate on practical points regarding daily use of these techniques with illustrative examples from a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders.
