Friday, February 24, 2017 – Sunday, February 26, 2017
Location:
Houston Methodist Research Institute in Houston, TX
Description:
Cardiovascular imaging plays a vital role in the management of the cardiovascular patient. Knowledge of various imaging modalities is critical to understanding their advantages, limitations and appropriate utilization in patients with ischemic heart disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, cardiomyopathy, masses, valvular disease, and aortic disease.

This symposium offers the opportunity, in addition to didactic lectures by world experts, to have small-group tutorials in each imaging modality, live cases, and demonstration of heart anatomy to better visualize and understand cardiac and valvular structure and enhance correlations with cardiac imaging.

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

XXIII World Congress of Clinical Cardiology, Echocardiography & Allied Imaging Techniques and XXII Annual Conference of Indian Academy of Echocardiography

Categories:
ASE Sponsored Live CME Programs, CME Programs From Other Organizations, Events
Date:
Thursday, October 5, 2017 – Sunday, October 8, 2017
Location:
Birla Institute of Scientific Research, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India
Description:

The theme of the congress is "Potentials of Clinical Cardiology by Echocardiography and Imaging".

This congress will provide a forum where medical professionals from this country and abroad will have a unique opportunity to discuss the various aspects of cardiovascular medicine, including recent advances, diagnosis, prognosis and various therapeutic aspects.

Cardiovascular imaging has now evolved as a fully integrated technology in a patient workup right from diagnosis to therapeutic decision making. As such, for the first time, its implementation in clinical cardiology will also be a subject of focus. Various disciplines of cardiology like interventional cardiology, pediatric cardiology, electrophysiology, pacing, CRT etc. have made tremendous strides. As such, in this congress a very informative scientific program, offering a comprehensive and innovative educational sessions, will be designed in concordance with growing demands of the various disciplines of cardiology. This, hopefully, will be achieved by symposia, case studies, hemodynamic workshops and meet the experts sessions etc, Hence the scientific content will be a judicious mixture between clinical education and latest scientific developments, keeping in mind the requirements of physicians, cardiologists, sonographers, fellows, interventionists, heath care policy makers and other health care professionals. A major part of the program will be dedicated to clinical practitioners. The audience will have ample opportunity to interact with international and national faculty.

There will be a unique, case based interactive pre-congress CME on October 5th, 2017.

We hope, besides enjoying the scientific sessions, you will enjoy Jaipur, Rajasthan for its Royal monuments, finest museums, shopper's paradise, courtly grace and exquisite cuisine, besides its nearness to Taj Mahal and other delightful sites of neighbouring places.

We hope you will absorb better knowledge of various aspects of cardiology and be confident to face new challenges.

We look forward to welcoming you for an exciting and unforgettable event.

LAA 2017

Categories:
CME Programs From Other Organizations, Events
Date:
Friday, November 17, 2017 – Saturday, November 18, 2017
Location:
Frankfurt Marriott Hotel - Frankfurt, Germany
Description:
Many patients with atrial fibrillation cannot take anticoagulation initially or have to stop it later due to complications. Even newly invented anticoagulants are often unsuitable for these patients. LAA closure has become a reasonable alternative.

During this 2-day course you will get an overview on all aspects of this treatment modality. Clinical studies will be covered and we will also demonstrate how to perform the procedure step by step and how to prevent and manage complications. Live case transmissions are a core of this course and will allow direct attendee-operator interaction to maximize the learning experience.
