Welcome to the newsletter created just for you: sonographers who perform pediatric echocardiograms in primarily adult echo labs. Each issue features tips on echocardiography of congenital heart disease, short case reports, congenital heart center news, and information on upcoming educational programs.

We want you to be successful in performing studies even on newborns that may have critical heart disease. After all, prompt diagnosis and emergency treatment will yield the best outcome for our patients.

If you have any questions regarding necessary views or anatomy while doing an emergent echo, please call the Congenital Heart Center “on call” cardiologist.  They will always be glad to speak with you. The “on call” cardiologist can be reached by calling 309.655.7257. For more general questions, please call one of the sonographers here at the Congenital Heart Center at 309.624.9436.
