Talk about the heart, and one thinks of the core of one’s being – love and emotions, beliefs and strengths. And yet, dysfunction of the four-chambered muscular organ – heart disease – is the primary cause of death in this country and worldwide. The primary focus of this session will be on advancing innovative therapeutics and novel diagnostics to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease.
Echocardiography, also called an echo test or heart ultrasound, is a test that takes “moving pictures” of the heart with sound waves. It’s not surgery. Echocardiography uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler ultrasound to create images of the heart. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tests in cardiology. It can provide a wealth of helpful information, including the size and shape of the heart (internal chamber size quantification), pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any tissue damage. Echocardiography can help to detect cardiomyopathies, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, and many others.
