Academic Meetings

As part of our programme of bimonthly academic meetings, the following academic meetings were successfully held by the Chapter in the year 2014 – 2015:

  • On 1st March, 2014, from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm, at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla, New Delhi

  • On 15th November, 2014, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, at Moolchand Medicity, Lajpat Nagar III, New Delhi

All of the meetings were well attended, with about 20 to 50 attendees at each meeting, with presentations of interesting adult and paediatric echocardiograms by the members. A special feature of the latter three meetings was a 15 minute interactive session of the members with Dr K K Aggarwal regarding various medicolegal issues in relation to echocardiography, which was much appreciated by all.

In addition to these relatively brief academic meetings, the Chapter also organised two extended conferences, as described below:

  • Echo Revolution 2014, on 30th August, 2014, at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla, New Delhi. This was a half day meeting, from 2:45 pm to 7:30 pm, which included didactic lectures and case presentations. The star attraction of this meeting was Dr Navin C Nanda, who was present throughout, giving his invaluable insights, and also conducting live scanning on two patients.
  • Echocon Delhi and NCR 2015, on 15th February, 2015, from 8:30 am till 6:00 pm, at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. This full day conference was attended by over 100 delegates, including some from outside Delhi and the NCR. The conference had a scientific programme designed to provide a mix of didactic lectures and case presentations. Dr G Vijayraghavan from Trivandrum, and Dr R Alagesan from Chennai had kindly agreed to participate in the conference, in addition to luminaries in the field of cardiology and echocardiography from Delhi and the NCR.
