DMST 283 - Adult Echocardiography 2


Description

This course continues to focus on cardiac Doppler principles, cardiac Doppler imaging, and covers common pathologies such as valvular disease and heart failure seen in adult echocardiography. Pathologies will be discussed with a focus on the description of the disease, its clinical presentation, its typical and atypical sonographic appearance(s), its hemodynamic significance, the differential diagnosis or diagnoses involved, and the optimum scanning techniques in imaging the abnormality and its associated findings. The learning in this course is further refined by students’ hands-on laboratory and clinical practicum experiences in clinical settings where echocardiography is performed.
