Update on Advanced Echo in Heart Failure

Cardiology Live Webinar  | September 20, 2022, 7 pm (CEST) / 1 pm (EDT)

Update on Advanced Echo in Heart Failure

As a chronic, progressive condition and endpoint of a variety of cardiovascular diseases, heart failure (HF) is a growing problem worldwide. In heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), the assessment of cardiac function is even more complex. Early detection through screening programs is therefore essential. The recent development of AI-assisted techniques is expected to help clinicians increase the value of preventive screening by enabling faster, simpler, and most importantly, more robust measurements with less variability to improve productivity and clinical confidence.

Speaker: Prof. Fabian Knebel, MD
Head of the cardiology department
Sanaklinikum Berlin-Lichtenberg
Berlin, Germany

Prof. Dr. Fabian Knebel is the Head of the Department for Internal Medicine II with a focus on cardiology at Sana Hospital Lichtenberg, which is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Professor Knebel specializes in internal medicine and cardiology, and also acquired extensive additional qualifications in the fields of interventional cardiology and cardiac insufficiency of the German Society for Cardiology (DGK). The Department for Internal Medicine II provides cardiopulmonary function diagnostics at the highest level, four places equipped with high-end echocardiography machines and three-dimensional ultrasound, contrast-enhanced echocardiography and deformation imaging. In addition, the state-of-the-art echo lab is certified by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Furthermore, together with the emergency department, it is certified as a Cardiac Arrest Center (CAC). He is currently co-speaker of the working group on cardiac imaging of the DGK.

Presentation Title: Update on Advanced Echo in Heart Failure
The webinar will focus on the central role of echocardiography in clinical medicine as the initial imaging modality of choice. We will start with suggested views for a standardized examination with an emphasis on image quality and pitfalls. We will then focus on new imaging tools (like 3D, left ventricular and left atrial strain): When are they helpful, how we acquire these images – and how do we interpret them and apply them to the clinical problem of our patients.
