Overview of Cardiac Surface Anatomy, Porcine Heart Dissection Workshop with 2D/3D & Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) and Surgical Correlation
Douglas Shook, MD, FASE, Victor Pretorius, MD, MBchB & Eugene Golts, MD

This is a hands-on dissection lab in which participants are guided through a porcine heart dissection. TEE images will be correlated to the anatomic dissection. One will gain knowledge of the anatomic landmarks that correspond to echocardiographic structures including normal anatomic variants. This lab will enable participants to gain a greater understanding of echocardiographic images, which will enhance their skill in accurate interpretation of those images. Faculty will be available for assistance with questions about the dissection and the correlation to echocardiography.

Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE) Workshop
UC San Diego Faculty

TTE workshop is designed to guide the novice echocardiographer through a TTE exam. We will describe how to perform a basic exam then follow with a hands-on workshop using both simulators and live models. The basic exam is a simple yet effective method to evaluate the preoperative patient for common cardiac pathologies, many of which alter surgical and anesthetic management. The basic exam is also a powerful tool in evaluating the hemodynamically unstable postoperative patient. At the end of the workshop, the participant should feel comfortable enough with the TTE exam to apply it to his or her own practice.

Lecture: Intro to Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE)
Lecture: Value of Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE) in Perioperative Care

Byron Fergerson, MD

1530-1730

Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) Workshop
UC San Diego Faculty

(Limited Space - Sign Up Required)

TEE workshop utilizes the high fidelity simulators to allow hands on practice with image acquisition and probe manipulation. Describe basic transesophageal echocardiography views, as well as interpret left ventricular anatomy and function, aortic valve, mitral valve anatomy and function. Workshop will involve instructors at each station to guide you in the process.

1530-1730

3D Hands-On Workshop
G. Burkhard Mackensen, MD, PhD, FASE & Madhav Swaminathan, MD, FASE

(Limited Space – Sign Up Required)

3D workshop will involve laptop stations with 3D software and acquired 3D datasets. The workshop allows the hands-on directed manipulation various cropping and image presentation techniques of the 3D data sets. Attendees will have ample opportunity to develop hands-on experience with QLAB as well as appreciate the principles of 3D image acquisition, optimization and interpretation.
