Basic Echocardiography for Beginners
- Nothing at all. This is a course for the absolute beginner.
This is a course for the absolute beginner who wants to learn what the basic echocardiography views are, how to get them, and which structures can be seen in each view. This is for young cardiolgists or sonographers who are starting out, or for established anaesthesiologists, intensivists or ER physicians who want to learn a life-saving new skill. It's not for established echocardiographers.
- Students, doctors or sonographers who are starting out in echocardiography and want to learn the basic views.

I'm a 31 year-old Egyptian cardiologist with over 7 years of experience. I'm also a computer programmer; web developer; and 2D/3D graphic designer, and I'm always striving to bring my two worlds together. I got the idea for VirtualEcho back when I was a resident cardiologist, struggling with echocardiography like everybody else, and decided I could do something to help make it easier for people to learn.
