CSI Frankfurt and PICS-AICS are currently the leading conferences about congenital, structural and valvar interventions in Europe and the US. Both have a track record of almost 20 years and both attract around 1000 participants from all over the world. In 2015, CSI and PICS independently organized additional annual meetings to cater for physicians involved in the care of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease patients in the Asia-Pacific region. 

CSI AP 2015, held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, proved to be a great success with attendees from more than 25 countries in the Asia Pacific region but also from Europe, Africa and America. Likewise, PICS-AICS AP 2015 held in Taipei, Taiwan was a great success with several hundred visitors from many Asian countries and also from overseas. Building on the success of CSI AP and PICS-AICS AP, the decision was made to join forces to offer a unique experience that no other conference can match. 

PICS-CSI Asia will give a comprehensive overview of major topics in catheter therapy of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease and is designed for adult and pediatric interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists, imaging specialists, nurses, technicians and any other medical specialty involved in these procedures. It will also provide opportunities for engineers, device design specialists and inventors to learn from and network with physicians. 

We are fully committed to ensuring that the success of this meeting will parallel that of its European and American counterparts. The program will include lectures from leading experts in the field, live case demonstrations, hands-on simulation training, master class sessions and an industry exhibition. The high number of live cases and the close interaction between conference attendees and faculty will make PICS-CSI Asia unique in the Asia-Pacific region. Our concept is to facilitate a conference for Asian colleagues organized by Asian colleagues. We acknowledge and appreciate the huge potential not only in interventional procedures but also in science and technology in the Asia Pacific region and we see our role in facilitating and encouraging this process.

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.

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.

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
