Hands-On Carotid and Peripheral Vascular Imaging, Including Vascular Access 2015

Category:
CME Programs From Other Organizations
Date:
Monday, September 21, 2015 – Thursday, September 24, 2015
Location:
Irving (Dallas), Texas USA
Description:
The definitive hands-on course for your start in vascular ultrasound imaging.   For clinicians and physicians from all specialties and experience.  You'll learn the complete ICAVL sanctioned protocols for all aspects of peripheral vascular imaging, including: carotid and vertebral arterial disease (including IMT), DVT, Baker's cyst, venous valvular incompetence, arterial obstruction, graft and stent assessment, renal vascular disease, and vascular access.  

We'll practice the protocols repeatedly in the Scan Lab and explain each step, with the clinical implications underlying each each one.  After regular class hours the Scan Lab remains open around the clock for you to practice independently, on yourself or with your peers in class.  Class is small, permitting us to identify and respond to your individual needs at every step.  Every question you have about vascular testing, hemodynamics, or physics is going to be answered.  Even graduates of formal ultrasound programs attend to better understand the clinical relationship of these tests, in preparation for the CCI, ARDMS, and ACR certification exams.  Emergency and critical care physicians find that the hands-on focus is powerfully effective in mastering vascular ultrasound for their needs.

Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago, IL
Description:
Course Background
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Valvular heart disease (VHD) affects more than five million individuals just in this country. VHD can be congenital or acquired, and patients may or may not exhibit symptoms. Although there are national guidelines regarding management of VHD, controversies in care in the areas of advanced technology and medicine demand that collaborative methods be created for diagnosis and strategic medical, surgical and interventional management.

Course Objective
At the 2015 Heart Valve Summit, the American College for Cardiology (ACC) and American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS) will once again will bring together cardiologists and surgeons for a case-based course addressing the rapid advances in VHD treatment.

Focusing on interactivity and practical decision-making, this unique conference will engage participants in discussions, debates and potential controversies using real-world cases. Its faculty will include renowned experts, who are on the cutting edge of clinically relevant VHD data.

This interdisciplinary course will combine clinical decision-making with medical, surgical and interventional options for patient care, taking into account that constantly changing management tools can impact the surgical team. Breakout sessions for cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses and physician assistants have been designed to help specialists manage their unique challenges from a team perspective.

Target Audience
The 2015 Heart Valve Summit is intended for cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, internists, nurses, physician assistants and all health care professionals involved in the evaluation, diagnosis and/or management of VHD patients.

We'll practice the protocols repeatedly in the Scan Lab and explain each step, with the clinical implications underlying each each one.  After regular class hours the Scan Lab remains open around the clock for you to practice independently, on yourself or with your peers in class.  Class is small, permitting us to identify and respond to your individual needs at every step.  Every question you have about vascular testing, hemodynamics, or physics is going to be answered.  Even graduates of formal ultrasound programs attend to better understand the clinical relationship of these tests, in preparation for the CCI, ARDMS, and ACR certification exams.  Emergency and critical care physicians find that the hands-on focus is powerfully effective in mastering vascular ultrasound for their needs.

3D Echo Intensive Course

Category:
CME Programs From Other Organizations
Date:
Monday, March 14, 2016 – Friday, March 18, 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

17th Annual ASECeXAM/ReASCE Review Course

Date:
Saturday, April 16, 2016 – Tuesday, April 19, 2016
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.
