Oakstone’s Echocardiography – A Comprehensive Review provides an extensive, in-depth overview of all modalities of echocardiography used in the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected heart disease. The 38 expertly-informed presentations offer insight into the morphologic features and physiologic functioning of the myocardium, valves, pericardium, coronary arteries, and great vessels.

Directed by Scott D. Solomon, MD and Maja Cikes, MD, PhD, this online cardiology CME course includes 38 evidence-based lectures organized in four sections: general principles, disorders, modalities, and settings. Skilled echocardiographers reflect on the substantial technological advances that have brought innovative clinical applications and enhanced diagnostic accuracy.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Name the components of a complete echocardiography exam
  • Describe the composition and safety of ultrasound enhancing (contrast) agents
  • List the required data for post TAVR echo assessment
  • Differentiate between two-dimensional and Doppler echo features in pulmonary hypertension
  • Recognize the limitations of handheld echocardiography
  • Explain the role of echocardiography in cardiotoxicity diagnosis
  • Outline the necessity of echocardiography in the assessment of complications in infective endocarditis
  • Summarize the application of intraoperative echocardiography to clinical decision making
  • Differentiate between the use of echocardiography in hypertrophic hearts and in dilated hearts
  • List the conditions that can be assessed with stress echocardiography
  • Identify the role of echocardiography in cardiotoxicity diagnosis and risk prediction
  • State the role of echocardiography regarding the normal range of “dysfunction” in prosthetic valve use
  • Distinguish between the uses for punch biopsy, shave biopsy, and incisional/excisional biopsy for skin lesions
  • Outline the diagnostic skills regarding in-office blood pressure measurement and the implementation of proper blood pressure measurement techniques
  • List the signs and symptoms of mosquito-borne diseases
  • List topical and systemic treatments for various types of dermatitis

This educational activity was designed for cardiologists, cardiovascular/thoracic surgeons, critical care physicians, anesthesiologists, and others interested in echocardiography.
