ECO Advanced Subject 6: Advanced Valve and Aortic Pathology


The ECO Advanced subject 6 systematically goes through the advanced assessment of all the valves, including prothetic valve assessment. The tutorials build on from the knowledge assimilated in Level 1. The level of interpretation is consistent with diagnostic level echocardiographers, cardiac anesthesiologists, or cardiologists. This subject also covers aortic disease (including aneurysms and dissection), as well as a further tutorial on miscellaneous congenital cardiac disorders.

The course instruction builds upon previous knowledge so it is best to complete the subjects in order. For the ECO Advanced certification, all subjects ECO 5-8 need to be completed and satisfactorily passed.

This is an online course. Upon receipt of payment, the student will receive a “Getting Started” email with instructions on how to access the course materials.

Students have the flexibility to study in their own time and location. Program materials can be accessed through the iTeachU app on smartphones and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Once the program materials have been downloaded on smartphones and tablets, all the interactive media content can be viewed even when offline (however internet access is required periodically to login or re-verify login credentials).  Program materials can also be accessed online using a web browser.
