Interpretation of ECHO and the Path to Diagnostic Certainty in PAH

CME: 0.75

Target Audience

This activity is intended for radiologists, pulmonologists, cardiologists, and other allied healthcare practitioners managing patients with suspected PAH.

Program Overview

Don’t delay the diagnosis of PAH or overlook high-risk patients who should be screened. Dr. Ryan approaches this activity through a test first model. The learner is challenged with clinical scenarios via ECHO images and interactive questions, then commentary, recommendations, and strategies are provided by the faculty to apply in practice to improve patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the current role of imaging in the diagnosis and management of PAH
  • Outline imaging features that suggest a diagnosis of PAH
  • Identify high-risk patients that should be referred for PAH diagnostic workup
