The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website.
Transesophageal Echocardiography Essentials course with consultant cardiologist Andrew R. Houghton. By the end of the lesson, participants will have learned how to obtain the mid-esophageal 4-chamber view of the LV, and use it to assess LV function and look for RWMAs of the inferoseptal and anterolateral walls, and how to screen for LV thrombus/masses.
I’m enthusiastic about medical education and am a Deputy Director of Medical Education and Foundation Training Program Director in Lincolnshire. My passion is for non-invasive cardiac imaging, especially echocardiography; cardiovascular magnetic resonance; and helping others to understand the remarkable capabilities of modern imaging techniques.
