Ms Ada Lo at ESC 2022
Ada Lo is the lead sonographer at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Cardiology Echo Lab.
I submitted two abstracts of my PhD projects to ESC 2022 and they were accepted as moderated posters.
My job at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Cardiology Echo Lab involves training student sonographers and cardiology advanced trainees. I am also heavily involved in research projects and education.
I submitted two abstracts of my PhD project to ESC 2022, and they were accepted as moderated posters: the first moderated poster presented was “Use of advanced echocardiographic modalities to discriminate preclinical HCM mutation carriers from non-carriers”. The second, was entitled “Use of advanced echocardiographic deformation measures to delineate cause of pathological left ventricular hypertrophy: value of a multiparametric approach”.
This was my first time to attend the world class conference, ESC 2022 Congress, and the experience was fantastic. However, I did find that many talks that I attended at the ESC had already been presented in our own CSANZ Annual Scientific Meeting just two weeks prior. I really want to congratulate the organizing committee of our own CSANZ who give us a world class annual meeting.
I was also invited to present in the CSANZ Highlights session on the second day of this conference. It was a great privilege to present together with several experts in Cardiology from Australia. I really enjoyed the interesting case presentations and other moderated abstracts presented from centres around the world. It gave me new insights of how some new measurements can be of use in either research or clinical aspects.
Finally, I want to thank the CSANZ committee for the sponsorship of my trip.
