DIACF-AD Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography - Echocardiography

Courses and Descriptions

ULTR-1006Cardiac Sonography 1

This course introduces cardiac sonography and cardiac scan techniques. It is designed to enable the student to recognize and understand normal anatomy, physiology, and the sonographic appearance of the heart. Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography 1 integrates anatomy and physiology with sonographic principles in the imaging of the heart. The focus of this course is on the assessment and interpretation of patterns in the normal heart as seen with Two Dimensional, M-mode, and Doppler (color, CW, and pulsed wave) imaging. The focus of the course then shifts to the etiology, hemodynamics, signs and symptoms, and sonographic patterns as relevant to the interpretation and quantification of cardiac disease including mitral, aortic, tricuspid, pulmonary, segmental wall anatomy, coronary artery, cardiomyopathy, heart failure, hypertension (systemic and pulmonary), cardiac masses, pericardial disease, cardiac masses, prosthetic heart valves, diseases of the aorta, and Diastolic Function (provocative maneuvers). The course will integrate theory and laboratory practices.
