This course will address advanced Doppler techniques and diagnostics.  At the conclusion of this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Evaluate diastolic function as it applies to cardiomyopathies in cats.
  • Evaluate of left ventricular filling pressure and the risk for development of congestive heart failure in dogs.
  • Evaluate systolic function beyond fractional shortening and systolic chamber size.
  • Determine the presence of subclinical dilated cardiomyopathy in dogs.
  • Assess the risk of thrombus development in cats with cardiomyopathy.
  • Use echocardiographic methods to evaluate for the presence and severity of pulmonary hypertension when there is no tricuspid or pulmonary insufficiency.
