CSE Activities at CCC 2017
We would like to wish a happy Sonography Week to all our sonography members and colleagues!
The Annual Canadian Echo Weekend is designed around your needs and requests over the past eighteen 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.
We are excited to bring to you this year a new 3D Echocardiography Made Simple! A Hands- on Analysis Workshop. These ticketed sessions will focus on the analysis of 3D echocardiographic datasets. The aim of the workshop is to review 3D cropping methods and currently available left ventricular and mitral valve analysis packages. We have recruited Canadian and International leaders to lead these sessions using equipment from GE and Philips. The sessions are limited to 13 people each to allow sufficient interaction and support. New this year is a 2D Strain Made Simple! A Hands-on Analysis Workshop. The tutors will guide you again on either GE or Philips workstations in the application of 2D strain in clinically meaningful situations.
In addition to top-tier Canadian speakers, this year’s guest speakers include Dr. Erwan Donal, Echo Section Head of European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) who will be presenting a comprehensive and cutting edge talk on The Role of Echocardiography in Atrial Fibrillation and Dr. Susan Wiegers, Immediate Past President of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) who will be presenting on Appropriate Use and Value of Echo.
Our Young Echocardiographers of Canada, led by Dr. François Tournoux, will be hosting an Echo Jeopardy Tournament and a Research Poster Competition, and will be welcoming Dr. Julia Grapsa, the past head of the EACVI’s Heart Imagers of Tomorrow.
The faculty is looking forward to seeing you again this year at the 19th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend.
Canadian Society of Echocardiography (CSE) will be one of the partner societies for the upcoming World Summit of Echocardiography (WES). WES is a biannual event organized by European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) and the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE). It will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 4-6 October 2017. Stay tuned.
August 1, 1937 – December 1, 2016
Trevor was born in the small town of Kellits, Jamaica to Reginald and Louise Robinson. He earned a scholarship to the prestigious boarding school, Munro College, to which he was inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2016 for his contribution to echocardiography. While studying in Buffalo, New York, Trevor met the love of his life, Ranga, who had travelled halfway across the globe from Madras, India. In 1966, Trevor and Ranga were married and in 1973, Trevor joined the cardiology staff at St. Michael’s Hospital. In 2008, Dr. Robinson received the lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Society of Echocardiography. Dr. Robinson, known as ‘TR’, devoted countless hours to the treatment of his thousands of patients until his retirement in December 2015. For over 50 years, Trevor and Ranga remained inseparable. Trevor was most proud of his two children, Lisa (John Aquino) and Rohan (Sylvie) and his three grandchildren, David, Laurel and Kate. They sorely miss their Appa but know that he will always be watching over them. Trevor also leaves behind a brother, Barry, and two sisters, Hope and Joy. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all of the staff at Toronto General Hospital for providing Trevor with such phenomenal and compassionate care to the very end.
