Assessment of Diastolic Function in Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease
Virtual Activities
Added:

November 17, 2022 | 8:00 - 9:30 PM (ET)
CME Information: 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM (Pending Approval)
The ASE PCHD Council and Education committees is continuing a series of webinars to discuss and share practical tips / tricks in the practice of congenital heart disease imaging.
This educational offering will comprise of 4 webinars /year (one per quarter). By leveraging the virtual platform, these sessions are designed to reach the ASE pediatric and congenital community, both sonographers and physicians.
This webinar will consist of two didactic lectures followed by debate on assessment of diastolic function in pediatric population. The webinar will highlight the need for accurate assessment of diastolic dysfunction in patients with congenital heart disease as well as children with acquired heart disease while acknowledging the lack of validation in children of parameters used in assessment of diastolic dysfunction in pediatrics.
Speaker(s):
Mihn Nguyen, MD, Assistant Professor, Texas Children’s Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine,
Keri Shafer, MD, Department of Cardiology, Boston Children's Hospital & Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School,
Andreea Dragulescu, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto
Piers Barker, MD, Professor of Pediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynecology, Duke University Medical Center
