Welcome to the 20th Annual Canadian Echo Weekend – 12 to 14 April 2018



Dear colleagues and friends,

We are looking forward to welcoming you all to the 20th anniversary Canadian Society of Echocardiography Annual Echo Weekend at the Toronto Downtown Marriott. We have well over 700 participants and are looking towards a record attendance. The meeting starts Thursday  evening at 6:30 with dinner followed by a look back and forward to the use of Echocardiography and novel technology in Canada.

The main meeting begins Friday, chock full of interactive symposia, as well as our hands-on sessions for those who registered. We close Friday with Echo Jeopardy, organized by the Young Echocardiographers of Canada. More symposia and workshops take place on Saturday. We will have joint sessions on Friday with the EACVI and Saturday with the ASE. We close with our famous cases from around the country.

We will have a Twitter handle again to receive questions from the audience and there will be ample time to interact with experts.


Stop by at the breaks to see the research posters submitted by echo trainees from across the county, vying to research awards.

We hope that you will appreciate the changes incorporated based on your feedback and are excited to see you tomorrow.

Safe travels.

Lawrence Rudski MD

President, Canadian Society of Echocardiography
