Mitral Valve Disease Imaging
Echocardiography is the main imaging modality to evaluate mitral valve regurgitation and to assess the severity of hemodynamic consequences. This activity will present how the management plan and selection of intervention rely completely on echocardiography assessment of valve morphology and the extent of disease.
Cardiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, sonographers and vascular technologists.
- Recognize the anatomy and pathophysiology of mitral valve regurgitation.
- Describe the details of TTE and TEE protocols.
- Identify specific criteria used in the classification of disease severity.
