Last September 19-20, 2011, the Philippine Society of Echocardiography held its 17th Annual Convention here at the Philippine Heart Center with the theme “Something Old, Something New, Something Small, Something Blew”. 

The echo sonographers of the Philippine Heart Center  Non-Invasive Cardiology Division was in-charge of the simultaneous hands-on sessions during the said occasion wherein the echosonographers provided a short basic lecture on the following assigned topic: Day 1 September 19 Stress echo and 3 Decho and Day 2 September 20 Prosthetic valves (MVR and AVR) .  The facilitators of the day 1 session were Nathaniel M. Helera, Michalengelo I. Yap, Jelyn H. Vallarta and Ma. Freida Wilma Lee while on day 2 were Rylan B. Ubaldo, Judith C. Rosas, Giselle K. Abad and Reina Liezl Ancheta. The hands-on session provided actual patients and echo machines  to demonstrate how to do the echo and Doppler study. These sessions were available only to fellow sonographers as the discussions were mainly about the technical facets of the supposed subject matter.
