This unique hands-on course ran for a second time over the course of five days.  It was designed for Specialists to improve and develop their skills in echocardiography. John Keen, Celia Marr, Mark Bowen and Gayle Hallowell led seminars, case discussions and practical sessions covering all aspects of two-dimensional, M Mode and Doppler echocardiography and exploring the novel technologies 3D echo and speckle tracking. Each day there were sessions comparing echocardiography and pathology aimed at helping delegates gain insight on how echo findings correlate with structural changes and pathology discussions were led by Alastair Foote. The course was limited to 6 delegates and participants  prepared their own case presentations and journal article summaries to share with the group.

A social evening enjoying entertainment at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds was enjoyed by delegates, lecturers and helpers.
