Echo Week

Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Echo Week

Echo Week 2017, the annual review and update of perioperative echocardiography, brought together faculty and attendees from around the world. The passion of both the faculty and meeting participants in teaching and learning the subject matter was palpable!

Nearly 300 physicians and allied health professionals joined us in Atlanta for 5 days of intensive perioperative echo education, where they had complete and easy access to expert faculty.

The porcine heart dissection with imaging, surgical, and structural heart correlation offered a one-of-a-kind learning experience that every participant rated as a highlight of the meeting.

Vera H. Rigolin, MD FACC FAHA FASE, presented the 10th Annual Arthur E. Weyman Lecture, discussing “Echo During TAVR: Is TEE Obsolete?”

Special awards were presented this year to dedicated Society leadership. Alina Nicoara, MD FASE, was given the Echo Week Co-Directors Award, in recognition of her expertise in perioperative echocardiography and outstanding contribution to the success of Echo Week. Bruce A. Bollen, MD, was presented with the Echo Week 20th Anniversary Award, in honor of his dedication and service to the meeting as a faculty member and invaluable contribution to its success.
