Advanced Doppler and 2D Echocardiography – Beyond Pressure Gradients and FS - February 27/28 2021 - Cambridge, ON

This course will address advanced Doppler techniques and diagnostics.  At the conclusion of this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Evaluate diastolic function as it applies to cardiomyopathies in cats.
  • Evaluate of left ventricular filling pressure and the risk for development of congestive heart failure in dogs.
  • Evaluate systolic function beyond fractional shortening and systolic chamber size.
  • Determine the presence of subclinical dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs
  • Assess the risk of thrombus development in cats with cardiomyopathy.
  • Use echocardiographic methods to evaluate for the presence and severity of pulmonary hypertension when there is no tricuspid or pulmonary insufficiency.

 A scanning session will provide guidance in learning these new techniques.

 Attendees should be able to obtain a basic 2D echocardiographic study and have basic knowledge and experience in color flow and spectral Doppler.
