Basic 3D Image Acquisition Workshop

Simulators have been utilized for TEE training as task trainers.  Traditionally they provide hands-on training for image acquisition for 2D imaging only and hands-on simulators for 3D imaging are limited.  In this workshop, by using phantom heart models, participants will be able to use actual ultrasound equipment to practice 3D imaging acquisition and optimization techniques.  The workshop will use equipment from multiple vendors to acquaint participants with multiple 3D imaging platforms and workflow.

Advanced 3D Image Acquisition Workshop

Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging is an emerging platform for cardiac imaging and it becoming accepted as a preferred imaging technique in a variety of clinical settings.  This session examines the principles of three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging and affords the participant to utilize phantom heart models to develop 3D images utilizing various ultrasound systems.  In depth discuss with faculty can occur to further define advanced 3D image acquisition concepts.  The workshop will use equipment from multiple vendors to acquaint participants with multiple 3D imaging platforms and workflow.

Structural Heart Disease Workshop

Structural heart disease interventions require a multi-disciplinary approach to intraoperative decision-making.  Part of this is acquisition of familiarity with the equipment terminology and spatial correlation of various cardiac imaging techniques (e.g. fluoroscopy and echocardiography).  Participants will work with a multi-disciplinary panel of experts, including anesthesiologists and interventional cardiologists, participants will dissect porcine hearts and handle demonstration equipment aided with simultaneous echocardiographic display and simulators to understand the spatial orientation and workflow.

Surgical Heart Disease Workshop

Surgical heart disease interventions require a multi-disciplinary approach to intraoperative decision-making.  Vital to this collaboration is understanding the surgical terminology and spatial correlation of various cardiac surgical procedures and how they intersect with echocardiography.  Participants will work with a multi-disciplinary panel of experts, including anesthesiologists and a cardiothoracic surgeon, attendees will dissect porcine hearts and handle demonstration equipment aided with simultaneous echocardiographic display and simulators to understand the spatial orientation and team based workflows.
