On 13-14 July 2023, NICCER ran the first ever 2-day Practical intermediate echocardiography (PIE) in Jakarta. PIE is a next level up workshop from our RACEplus (basic TTE course). The focus of PIE is understanding Doppler and how to perform measurements (with hands-on practice), and is especially suited for those who want to take a step forward and do standard measurements such as cardiac output, pulmonary pressures and tissue Doppler.

Feedbacks received from Jakarta PIE have been extremely good. Nearly all participants find the workshop very useful. Those who already have Doppler experience found the workshop useful in improving their measurements and avoiding pitfalls, those who are new to Doppler found the workshop provide solid foundation in Doppler measurements. PIE has been so well received that the co-organisers and sponsor were keen for us to return and run the workshop again!

We thank GE Healthcare Indonesia for their support and sponsor.
