Letter from the President

I would like to invite you all to attend the 2021 Virtual Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend to be held on Saturday, April 17, 2021, and Sunday, April 18, 2021. Similar to last year, as we continue to navigate new frontiers in the current COVID-19 era, we are excited to again host the 2021 Annual CSE weekend in a VIRTUAL format. Based on your valuable feedback, our 2-day program will focus on the most requested educational topics to be presented by our top-tier Canadian speakers including echocardiographers and sonographers. 

 

On Saturday, we will set the stage with “Back to Foundations: Valvular Heart Disease”, “Shaking the Foundations: Heart failure”, “Reinforcing the Foundations: Hemodynamics 101”, and a keynote presentation from Dr. Thor Edvardsen, immediate past President of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging: “Beyond LVEF: Strain”. 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 Karaoke celebration hosted by our one and only multi-talented Chi-Ming Chow! 

 

On Sunday, we will explore new developments in echo, starting with a Featured Session on “Extending Ultrasound Imaging Frontiers” focusing on lung ultrasound, vexus, and teleguidance. In addition to sessions on “Echocardiography in Coronary Artery Disease”, “Role of Echo in Critical Care”, and “Multimodality Cardiovascular Imaging”, we will host a keynote presentation from Dr. Judy Hung, current President of the American Society of Echocardiography on “Transcatheter Mitral Valve Therapy” and a special “CSE Cares: Ergonomics: Taking Care of Yourself” session with presentations from the Mayo Clinic team. We will conclude our VIRTUAL Annual CSE weekend with an all interactive game show. Stay tuned!

 

Below you will find the official 2-day program and the registration information. Our CSE family is looking forward to seeing you all again this year at the 2021 Virtual Annual Canadian Society of Echocardiography Weekend. See you all in April!

 

Best regards and stay safe.
