RSM Richter, one of Canada's largest independent accounting, business advisory and consulting firms, donated a state-of-the-art echocardiography system to the Echocardiology Clinic at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre. Proceeds from the 12th Annual RSM Richter Charity Golf Classic, held on June 17, will purchase a system that can generate 3-dimensional measurements of the heart in less than one minute.The golf tournament honoured Dr. Robert J. Cusimano, cardiovascular surgeon at TGH who specializes in the surgical treatment of heart failure. "Three dimensional echocardiograms are crucial for both the early detection of heart-related issues and also during actual cardiovascular surgery to provide valuable information about how the different parts of the heart are functioning," says Dr. Cusimano. The golf tournament also featured Erik Compton, who holds the distinction of being the only professional golfer in the world to compete with a transplanted heart. Erik visited the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre in June to witness firsthand the echocardiography system and to show support for more than five million Canadians that suffer from various forms of heart disease."I'm lucky enough to have had two heart transplants in my lifetime and I've seen firsthand the technology required to make that happen," says Erik, who also plays on the PGA Tour. "I'm happy to be a part of this important fundraiser and I hope more heart patients, such as myself, can benefit from this new echo system."
