The 18th Annual Canadian Society of Weekend will be held from 7 to 9 April, 2016 at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel. We have developed an exciting educational program for you.
The Annual Canadian Echo Weekend is designed around your needs and requests over the past seventeen meetings. We will focus on common clinical problems encountered in your practice and the important role that echocardiography plays in diagnosis and patient management. Novel and evolving technologies to enhance your diagnostic capabilities and improve patient care will be highlighted.
In addition to top-notched Canadian speakers, this year’s guest speakers include Dr. Gilbert Habib, President of European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) who will present on Infective Endocarditis: A Changing Disease and Dr. Vera Rigolin, Vice President of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) will be presenting on Appropriate Use vs. Clinical Indications.
We are excited to bring to you this year a new 3D Echocardiography Made Simple – A Hands-On computer analysis workshop. These ticketed workshops will review 3D cropping methods and currently available LV and mitral valve analysis packages on specific platforms. We have recruited Drs. Igal Sebag and Wendy Tsang to lead these sessions using equipment from GE and Philips. The sessions are limited to 10 people each to allow sufficient interaction and support.
