Fourth Annual Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging 2015: A Practical Approach

Date:
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 – Friday, February 6, 2015
Location:
Marriott Del Mar, San Diego, CA
Description:
Transcatheter structural heart disease intervention is a rapidly growing part of clinical care in adult cardiology, and requires the application of new interventional techniques while integrating imaging before and during treatment. This is an increasingly complex process that relies on systematic and effective collaboration between cardiovascular imaging specialists and interventionalists, among others. Scripps’ Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging conference is designed to provide a practical, cutting-edge, case-based assessment of the emerging area of structural heart disease intervention and interventional cardiovascular imaging. The expert faculty will include interventionalists, invasive cardiologists, and echocardiographers. Faculty will discuss patient selection, pre-procedural assessment, procedural tips, techniques and challenges (including concurrent imaging) during the performance of the procedures and conclude with assessment of outcomes and future directions.
Sponsored by Scripps Health and held in cooperation with ASE. Course Directors: Matthew J. Price, MD and David Rubenson, MD, FASE

3D Echo Intensive Course

Date:
Monday, March 2, 2015 – Thursday, March 5, 2015
Location:
Padua, Italy
Description:
The advent of three-dimensional echocardiography (3D echo) has significantly improved the impact of non-invasive imaging on our understanding and management of cardiac diseases in clinical practice.
Transthoracic 3DE enables an easier, more accurate and reproducible interpretation of the complex cardiac anatomy, overcoming the intrinsic limitations of conventional echocardiography.
The availability of unprecedented views of cardiac structures from any perspective in the beating heart provides valuable clinical information and new levels of confidence in diagnosing heart disease. One major advantage of the third dimension is the improvement in the accuracy and reproducibility of chamber volume measurement by eliminating geometric assumptions and errors caused by foreshortened views. Another benefit of 3D echo is the realistic en face views of heart valves, enabling a better appreciation of the severity and mechanisms of valve diseases in a unique, noninvasive manner.
However, 3D echo is a technically demanding technique and, for its effective use, echocardiographers need specific education and training. They have to learn how to acquire volumetric data sets without artifacts, and navigate within the data set to obtain the desired view. New tools like cropping, slicing and thresholding are available to manipulate the data sets in order to visualize the cardiac structure of interest. Finally, various ways to display the information are available and can be used to address different clinical issues.
To help echocardiographer who wish to implement 3D echo in the routine of their echo-lab, a 4-day intensive theoretical and practical course with hands-on sessions in the morning and theoretical lessons in the afternoon has been set up.

Category:
CME Programs From Other Organizations
Date:
Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Saturday, March 21, 2015
Location:
Disney's Boardwalk Inn - Lake Buena Vista, FL
Description:
Heart failure is a devastating disease that causes debilitating symptoms and excess mortality. It affects more than 9.5 million people in this country, with over 680,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Despite our best efforts, more than one-third of patients with heart failure are re-hospitalized within weeks of hospital discharge. Certainly as our population ages, the number of patients afflicted with this disease will grow. The economic burden now exceeds 10 billion dollars, and is forecasted to grow.  It is essential that heart failure is recognized promptly and proven therapies are applied to manage this chronic disease. Healthcare providers play a pivotal role in the care of these patients. Using a case-based approach, this course will enhance the attendees’ confidence in caring for these challenging patients.

16th Annual ASE ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course

Date:
Saturday, May 2, 2015 – Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Location:
Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Description:
The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) has specifically designed the ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course as a preparatory course for the National Board of Echocardiography, Inc.TM (NBE) ASCeXAM® and ReASCE® examinations. Lectures given will emphasize illustrative cases and as such will not be “canned talks” from other cardiovascular ultrasound courses. This review course will cover all aspects of cardiovascular ultrasound essential to these examinations, including physics, valvular heart disease, ischemic heart disease, congenital heart disease, and new technologies. The expert faculty will use case studies, lectures and interactive sessions to help prepare the attendee for the ASCeXAM® or ReASCE® examinations. An Audience Response System and question and answer sessions facilitate faculty interaction and self-guided learning. The 2013 Review Course has been designed with the computer-based examination administration in mind. There is more case-based learning and increased use of Audience Response Systems to simulate a digital multiple choice examination.
The ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course gives attendees the unique opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the expert Faculty. In a recent survey conducted by ASE, 97% of the people who took ASE’s ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course passed the echo boards.
