The Role of Simulators in Medicine and the Status of Echocardiography in Clinical Practice 

Dr. Mike Picard, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and director of clinical echocardiography at Massachusetts General Hospital, talks with Piedmont cardiologist Dr. Randy Martin about training residents in a simulation lab and how colleagues at his hospital are using echocardiography. Their conversation at Piedmont Heart’s 3-D Echo 360 conference in Atlanta also covers how best to measure LV function and why RV function may no longer be the Achilles’ heel of echocardiography.
