17TH ANNUAL ASCEXAM/REASCE REVIEW COURSE
Loews Philadelphia Hotel *PHILADELPHIA, USA Visit the Venue to read more
The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) has specifically designed the ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course as a preparatory course for the National Board of Echocardiography, Inc.TM (NBE) ASCeXAM® and ReASCE® examinations. Lectures given will emphasize illustrative cases and as such will not be “canned talks” from other cardiovascular ultrasound courses. This 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® examinations. An Audience Response System and question and answer sessions facilitate faculty interaction and self-guided learning. The 2015 Review Course has been designed with the computer-based examination administration in mind. There is more case-based learning and increased use of Audience Response Systems to simulate a digital multiple choice examination.
The ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course gives attendees the unique opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the expert Faculty. In a recent survey conducted by ASE, 97% of the people who took ASE’s ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course passed the echo boards.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be better able to:
• Explain the essential physical principles of cardiac ultrasound.
• Recognize common ultrasound artifacts and their genesis.
• Estimate systolic function using standard M-mode and 2D echocardiography, as well as newer modalities such as strain imaging and 3D echocardiography.
• Identify and quantitate valvular heart disease severity.
• Describe the application of Doppler in the assessment of hemodynamics and diastolic function.
• Perform clinically relevant calculations of valve areas and intracardiac pressures.
• Explain proven techniques for interpreting stress echocardiographic examinations.
• Differentiate features of cardiac tamponade, constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy.
• List appropriate applications of echocardiography.
• Recognize newer applications of echocardiography such as myocardial contrast.
