Congenital Echocardiogram Imaging Conference reviews echocardiogram studies for discussion of imaging techniques and associations with congenital heart disease (CHD). The goals are to improve image acquisition and interpretation. Additionally, reviewing known associations will allow images to be obtained to evaluate for those associations, allow accurate interpretation, and improve CHD knowledge.
MD/DOs, RNs and APRNs, PAs, sonographers/echo techs, residents/fellows, and students.
