Echocardiography specialists work in a challenging and stimulating hospital environment, combining caring for patients with analytical problem solving to ensure excellent healthcare and patient support.
Echocardiographers use ultrasound technology to examine a patient’s heart. This is achieved using a transducer that sends ultrasound waves through the patient's chest to structures in the heart; valves, chambers and other vessels. The readings are sent to a machine that translates them into a live image, which can be recorded and used to diagnose a variety conditions.
The PG Cert Echocardiography course is designed to match the professional development needs of healthcare professionals working with patients with conditions such as: ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, adult

I enjoyed studying on the Science and Technology of Ultrasound module as it provided me with the fundamental knowledge about physics of ultrasound which I could relate to my everyday practice. The classes were interactive and encouraged you to really think about the physics involved in echocardiography. Studying on the module has really helped me put theory into practice and I now understand the science behind image optimisation!
