This program will provide a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art 2-D, Doppler and transesophageal echocardiography with a strong emphasis on newer and more rapidly changing areas.  The topics to be covered include diastology, ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, application of TEE in clinical practice, and cardiomyopathy.  The role of echo relative to the newer imaging modalities will be discussed.  There are also afternoon workshops on heart failure, hemodynamics, congenital heart disease, and stress echo.  The final workshop will include a series of clinical cases which will focus on integrating various imaging modalities to provide the highest quality of patient care.  The course is designed for the clinician and sonographer who are actively involved in adult echocardiography and wish to gain additional practical experience in these specific areas.  Daily reading sessions will provide the opportunity to interpret case studies and to compare and discuss diagnoses with the faculty.  An integrated format combining theory and practice will be utilized.  In the morning sessions, a traditional lecture series will present state-of-the-art information on selected topics.  Application of the techniques to clinical practice will be emphasized. 
 
In the afternoon, attendees will have the opportunity to apply the lecture material in a workshop
environment.  A large number of cases will be presented, analyzed and discussed.  Each afternoon, attendees will be able to participate in reading sessions, covering a wide spectrum of diseases in clinical cardiology.  There will be live case demonstrations on Monday and Tuesday afternoons with patients from the local area. 

Intended Audience:  Clinical cardiologists and cardiac sonographers with interest in echocardiography, cardiology trainees; application specialists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and physician echocardiographers.

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
