3D Echo Intensive Course

Date:
Monday, May 23, 2016 – Friday, May 27, 2016
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 3D echo 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.

The program consists primarily of clinical cases which illustrate the problems cardiovascular specialists commonly encounter.  Multiple choice questions addressing the clinical utility and limitations of echocardiography follow each case.  In addition, faculty presents “rapid fire” and “unknown” cases.  The audience is also encouraged to bring unknown cases which will be shown during the sessions.


Special breakout sessions are devoted to the interpretation of Doppler hemodynamics, diastolic function, stress echocardiography, congenital heart disease, interventional, heart failure, CT/MRI, and perioperative echocardiography.


Attendees have the opportunity to share an interesting case with the faculty and audience.  If you would like to share an interesting case, please make this available as an MPEG, AVI, or WMV file.  The images should be deidentified. Please provide this case to the registration desk at check-in with a small written history of the patient.


This course is designed to encourage maximum audience participation and interaction with the faculty.

Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, Kohala Coast, HI
Description:
Echo Hawaii presents the latest information on established and emerging cardiovascular ultrasound technologies. Expert U.S. and international faculty discuss state-of-the-art technologies with a particular focus on how they can be effectively applied in the clinical setting. Case-based approaches are used to discuss new and established uses of echocardiography for diagnosis and guiding management in patients with a broad array of cardiovascular conditions. Topics include: advanced assessment of systolic and diastolic function, 3D/4D imaging, adult congenital heart disease, and contemporary approaches to valve disease, guidance of interventional procedures, contrast echocardiography, ischemic heart disease and aortic pathology. Special sessions are available for sonographer education and laboratory quality improvement.

Save the Date!18th Annual ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course

Date:
Saturday, April 29, 2017 – Tuesday, May 2, 2017
Location:
Lowes Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Description:
ASE has specifically designed the ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course as a preparatory course for the National Board of Echocardiography’sTM (NBE) ASCeXAM®  and ReASCE® examinations. Lectures given will emphasize illustrative cases and as such will not be “canned talks” from other cardiovascular ultrasound courses.

The 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®. An audience response system and question and answer sessions will facilitate faculty interaction and self-guided learning.

The ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Courses have been designed with the computer-based examination administration in mind. There is more case-based learning and increased use of an audience response system to simulate a digital, multiple choice examination. CME from this course is “echo-specific” and therefore appropriate for IAC Accreditation and NBE education prerequisites
