Hands-on Course in Basic Paediatric Echocardiography

June 7 @ 9:00 am - June 8 @ 5:00 pm

| £450

The workshop and presentations will focus on recognising and understanding basic paediatric echocardiography and morphology of the normal heart and hearts with simple lesions. This two day program is designed to take registrants from the basics of normal hearts and simple congenital heart disease to a hands-on imaging workshop in the afternoon.

Accreditation from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health has been applied for.

Who should attend?

  • Registrars
  • Neonatologists
  • Echo sonographers
  • All professions who manage and treat patients with heart disease

Why you should attend:

The course will help delegates understand how we obtain the echo images, the echo views and how images are obtained.

It will help delegates identify simple heart lesions and demonstrate basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology in basic congenital heart disease.
