Learn the Latest Guidelines with Online Cardiology

Oakstone’s Echocardiography – A Comprehensive Review provides an extensive, in-depth overview of all modalities of echocardiography used in the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected heart disease. The 38 expertly-informed presentations offer insight into the morphologic features and physiologic functioning of the myocardium, valves, pericardium, coronary arteries, and great vessels.

Directed by Scott D. Solomon, MD and Maja Cikes, MD, PhD, this online cardiology CME course includes 38 evidence-based lectures organized in four sections: general principles, disorders, modalities, and settings. Skilled echocardiographers reflect on the substantial technological advances that have brought innovative clinical applications and enhanced diagnostic accuracy.
