SAN FRANCISCO--()--For many residents in rural areas of Iowa, it’s difficult to travel to the city to see a cardiologist. Consequently, they may put off important medical care, only to have their situation worsen and result in a trip to the local hospital’s emergency department.
“Everyone expects a high quality of care, no matter where they live”
Cardiologists at the Iowa Heart Center, led by Dr. Richard Marcus, director of Iowa Heart’s Cardiac Ultrasound Laboratory, established an extended network of mobile and stationary echocardiography clinics to address this challenge and deliver advanced cardiac care to rural areas throughout the state.
Dr. Marcus will be presenting more details about the Iowa Heart Center CyberCardiology program March 9th and 10th in the Esaote exhibit (S-5123) during the 2013 American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
“Everyone expects a high quality of care, no matter where they live,” observed Dr. Marcus. “You shouldn’t expect any less care because you live in a small town than you would if you live in New York City.”
Dr. Marcus will illuminate details of how this important echocardiography program is implemented during his presentations in the Esaote exhibit on:
- Sunday, March 9, at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
- Monday, March 10, at 12:45 p.m. and 3:45 p.m.
Dr. Marcus will be available for discussion following his presentation.
