I first attended Professor Faletra in 2014 in St Wolfgang. And many times after that. I was enthusiastic when I learned he would organize a 3D transesophageal course. This course was particular because of the high quality of information, clinical case presentations, and interesting discussions. It was an excellent experience for me and fully met my expectation. Many thanks to professor Faletra and all his team.
I am very pleased and Satisfied with the 3D course.
It met my expectations and I am happy with the experience.
One thing would improve the course is to spend half a day in the lab to see how to acquire images and processing them.
The course met my expectations. I enjoyed the problem solving approach. Good lectures.
Since I first attended a lecture held by dr Faletra, I wanted to be present at one of his course on the topic of Echocardiography.
The course I participated in was a rewarding experience. Dr Faletra taught us in his own particular way, not only how to understand the 3D anatomy of the heart but also he shared with us the very new aspects of echocardiography, based on his vast experience in this field.
I definitely recommend his courses and Dr Faletra as well as a great mentor!
The course was great because it had all the theoretical 3D and anatomical information you need, but also the hands on cropping and offline reconstructions on real echo images. All the medical stuff was really nice and helpful, starting with dr. Faletra who himself taught us every course. The fact that there aren't many participants in this echo course (3-4 participants) gives you the opportunity to ask questions and have instructive discussions with the professor and the collegues. I highly reccomand this course!
