The 23rd Annual Convention and Scientific Meeting of the Philippine Society of Echocardiography and the Philippine Heart Association Council on Echocardiography

September 10: Preconvention on Strain Imaging and 3D Echo; September 11 to 12: Convention Proper

The 23rd installment of the PSE's Annual Convention carries the theme "The heART of Echo: Adopting a Rational Approach to Non-invasive Cardiac Imaging." The ethereal vibe suggests the idea of something new or uncharted in the field of echo. The constellation of stars very subtly portrays a heart-like figure, while the interconnecting lines imply the ongoing networking or synergy among ASEAN nations in the practice of echo. At the heart of it all is the PSE, bringing physicians, sonographers and echo enthusiasts together for a common goal--quality echo for the Filipino and for the world.
