Why I love to teach

Loading...
I am a UK board-registered Clinical Scientist with special interest in echocardiography and cardiac imaging. As a Fellow of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), I act as a long standing assessor for the EACVI echocardiography accreditation. I am an honorary lecturer at Imperial College London and I have a special interest in clinical education and teaching.

Assessing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using echocardiography

Echocardiography plays a big role for imaging in patients who are about to undergo a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). What should you pay attention to while assessing if a TAVR is indicated instead of surgical replacement? What examination should you order for valve sizing? What needs to be done after the procedure? Find out in this lesson presented by Samir Sulemane, a Senior Clinical Scientist and echocardiography expert at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust, UK.

Diagnosing prosthetic valve endocarditis with echocardiography

Prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) is a microbial infection of the valve. How do you diagnose PVE with ultrasound? Why do you need to differentiate between early and late PVE? When do patients need surgical treatment? Find out in this lesson presented by Samir Sulemane, a Senior Clinical Scientist and echocardiography expert at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust, UK.

Assessing velocities and gradients of prosthetic valves using echo

Prosthetic valves often cause some degree of obstruction to the blood flow in comparison with native heart valves. How can we evaluate the valve obstruction with echo? What’s the role of Bernoulli’s equation? And what’s the cutoff value for the blood flow peak velocity? Find out in this lesson presented by Samir Sulemane, a Senior Clinical Scientist and Echocardiography Expert at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust, UK.
