Echocardiography and Amyloidosis Resources

The complexities of using echocardiography in the diagnosis of cardiac amyloidosis are numerous. ASE is pleased to provide these educational resources on the early diagnosis, treatment, and management of cardiac amyloidosis. There is also an increasing appreciation that this disease is more prevalent than previously thought, and there are newer therapies for the treatment which are important to consider in patient care.

ASE Partners with Preventative Cardiovascular Nurses Association (PCNA)

ASE is partnering with Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association (PCNA) to present education on topics that touch echocardiographers and the cardiovascular nursing team. The goal of this partnership is to share learning, perspectives, and communicate the challenges and opportunities around patient identification and management that impact both communities.

Sharing expertise across team members can provide each member with a deeper understanding of issues in various cardiovascular diseases. ASE is committed to working across the field of cardiovascular health to impact better patient care.
