WEBINAR: Echocardiographic Strain Assessment in a Contemporary Cardiology Practice
Sponsored by Siemens and Epsilon Imaging
This educational webinar is focused on the value echocardiographic strain imaging brings to a contemporary cardiology practice presented by Anya Narezkina, M.D. She is an assistant clinical professor, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and director of the Cardio-Oncology Program at the University of California San Diego Cardiovascular Institute.
The webinar takes place Sept. 21, at 3 p.m. eastern time / 2 p.m. central time.
The webinar will cover the importance of myocardial strain imaging and current guidelines recommended by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE). Additionally, it will focus on the development of a comprehensive cardio-oncology program and the utility of strain imaging for diagnostic and surveillance for cardiotoxicity as well as other clinical indications. The webinar will conclude with a look into the future of strain imaging for echocardiography, followed by a Q & A session.
• Staying abreast of the current guidelines on strain imaging
• Understanding the utility of echo strain assessment in clinical practice
• Proper utilization of strain applications in cardio-oncology
• Understanding the value of strain imaging for prognostication in the clinical setting
