Letter from the President

I would like to invite you all to attend our 24th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography (CSE) Weekend: Digital Edition to be held virtually on Friday, February 4, 2022, Saturday, February 5, 2022, and Sunday, February 6, 2022. As we continue to demonstrate our ongoing perseverance and resilience in the current COVID-19 environment, we are excited again to host our Annual CSE weekend in a VIRTUAL format in February of next year. Based on your valuable feedback, our 3-day program will focus on the most requested educational topics to be presented by our top tier Canadian and international speakers including echocardiographers and sonographers.

 

On Friday, we will kick off the CSE Echo Weekend with a featured symposium on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy focusing on its pathophysiology and clinical manifestations, role of multimodality cardiovascular imaging (including echocardiography and cardiac MRI), and treatment options in the current era.

 

On Saturday, we will set the stage with “Chamber Quantification Masterclass: Tips and Tricks”, “Diastolic dysfunction: no time to relax”, “Multimodality imaging of dysfunctional prosthetic valves”, and a keynote presentation from Professor Erwan Donal from the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging: “Role of echocardiography in tricuspid regurgitation.” In addition, we will include a rapid fire scientific abstract competition with presentations from our trainees and early career faculty across Canada, our famous “Cases across Canada”, and conclude Saturday with a CSE celebration hosted by our one and only multi-talented Chi-Ming Chow!

 

On Sunday, we will start off with a feature session on Contrast Echocardiography. In addition to sessions on “Imaging heart failure: Current and future application”, “Role of Interventional Echocardiography”, and “Cardiovascular Imaging in Infective Endocarditis”, we will host a keynote presentation from Dr. Raymond Stainback, current President of the American Society of Echocardiography, on “Non-invasive imaging for coronary syndromes: 2021 guidelines update”. The CSE will also host our inaugural Dr. Jim Swan lecture entitled, “Evaluation of competency in echocardiography training.“  We will conclude our VIRTUAL Annual CSE weekend with an all interactive game show. Stay tuned!

 

Below you will find the official 3-day program and the registration information. Our CSE community is looking forward to seeing you all at the 24th Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend: Digital Edition. See you all in February!

 

Best regards and stay safe. 

 

Davinder S. Jassal, MD, FACC, FCCS, FRCP(C)

President, Canadian Society of Echocardiography




Program Objectives

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

 

• Describe the current role and application of echocardiography in patients with suspected and established cardiovascular disease

• Identify how novel and evolving echocardiography techniques can be applied to the clinical practice of echocardiography.

• Describe how echocardiography integrates with other cardiac imaging modalities (computed tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging) to optimally evaluate the patient with suspected or confirmed cardiovascular disease.
