Course Objectives: 

  • Understand the basic principles of Doppler echocardiography as it applies to color, spectral pulse wave (PW) and spectral continuous wave (CW) Doppler
  • Become familiar with the clinical strengths and limitations of color, PW and CW Doppler
  • Know/learn how to optimize color, PW and CW Doppler images: knobology
  • Know which 2D images are most useful for color, PW, and CW Doppler interrogation
  • Understand the role of color Doppler as it relates to spectral Doppler(PW and CW) interrogation
  • Recognize normal and abnormal color, PW and CW signals
  • Understand spectral Doppler (PW and CW) estimation of pressure gradients and their clinical utility in acquired heart disease in the dog and cat
  • Become familiar with color, PW and CW Doppler features of common acquired cardiac diseases in the dog and cat. Emphasis will be on the role of color, PW and CW doppler in the diagnosis and staging of diseases such as chronic valve disease, dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension
  • Become familiar with color, PW and CW Doppler evaluation as part of a standard color, PW, and CW Doppler protocol
  • Hands-on cardiac scanning instruction:
    • Optimization of the right and left side imaging planes to facilitate color, PW and CW Doppler interrogation
    • Color, PW, and CW Doppler associated knobology, i.e. optimization of these images
    • Acquisition and interpretation of a standard color, PW and CW Doppler examination
