The Diploma provides diagnostic level knowledge base in valve assessment, complex cardiovascular pathology, comprehensive reporting and has a greater focus on Transoesophageal Echocardiography (TOE).
A copy of Synapse Prosolv Viewer software, which is kindly supplied by FujiFilm, is included with the course materials. This allows measurements to be performed as for later clinical practice. Both courses are rich in case studies, containing 100 cases for review in each level, including in the Certificate course 50 additional basic TOE case studies, in addition to the images used in the tutorials. Students will need to obtain practical experience at their institutions or attend hands-on workshop to supplement their knowledge base.
