Proper Echocardiographic Measurements:  How and Why

Transesophageal Echocardiography in Structural Heart Disease

 

NEW!! Assessing Left Ventricular Diastolic Function

Echocardiography plays an important role in the assessment of diastolic function in patients with known or suspected heart failure and patients presenting with dyspnea. Assessing Left Ventricular Diastolic Function is comprised of case-based lectures followed by case studies. The dedicated lectures include questions on the echo parameters used to assess diastolic function and the physiology of diastology. This educational tool also describes how to utilize the ASE and EACVI 2016 guideline on diastology to classify and grade diastolic function, estimate left atrial filling pressure in patients, and evaluate patients with indeterminate diastolic function. You will also learn about the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with dyspnea such as restrictive cardiomyopathy and constrictive pericarditis, as well as the physiology of diastolic function, and the pitfalls in the assessment of diastology. This educational product is intended for cardiologists, anesthesiologists, cardiac sonographers, fellows, and other medical professionals interested in a comprehensive review of diastology and applying the updated diastology guideline in routine clinical practice. With this DVD, one individual user may earn 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™.

2nd Edition, Proper Echocardiographic Measurements: How and Why

This 2nd Edition of Proper Echocardiographic Measurements: How and Why is an evidence-based product focused on the methods used to obtain measurements, including explanations describing why such methods are appropriate. This educational tool comprises a combination of didactic lectures and clinical questions. It can be used as a review for experienced sonographers, as well as a training tool for new or early-career sonographers and others who are interested in the practice of cardiovascular ultrasound. Topics include imaging measurements (2D vs. M-mode, LV linear dimensions, basal cardiac measurements, LV volume, LA volume, inferior vena cava, right heart, strain, and 3D echo: LV volume) as well as velocity measurements (spectral Doppler, mitral inflow, mitral annulus, pulmonary vein, mitral stenosis, mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation, aortic valve, and HOCM). An individual user may earn 5.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™.

Utility of 3D Echocardiography: Promises and Perspectives

Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography has multiple advantages for the visualization of cardiac anatomy, chamber quantification, and guidance of transcatheter interventions.
In this DVD, experts in 3D echocardiography address essential topics in a case-based approach with multiple examples. The DVD begins with history of the technology and moves to the basics of image acquisition and display. Subsequent lectures focus on chamber quantification and valvular heart disease. The use of 3D echocardiography to guide transcatheter interventions is also examined in depth. Finally, a vision for the future of 3D echocardiography, including virtual reality, fusion imaging, and holographic display is presented. This teaching tool has multiple benefits including the capacity to quickly gain knowledge and improve your understanding of the capabilities of this novel imaging technique, the aptitude to visualize dynamic images in our clinical work, and an understanding of the potential future of 3D echocardiography. An individual user may earn 12 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™.

Essentials for Proficiency in Basic Cardiovascular Ultrasound

basicsDesigned by top physicians and professors of cardiovascular medicine, this comprehensive review of basic echocardiography has been created as a teaching tool for echocardiography fellows and others interested in learning about the use of cardiovascular ultrasound in clinical practice. This set includes 15 lectures on a variety of topics, beginning with the normal TTE and TEE examinations, and then covering the mitral and aortic valves in-depth, left and right heart function, physics, prosthetic valves, and more. Each lecture has been carefully crafted to include a thorough review of practical concepts, references to ASE’s Guidelines and Standards, video examples of normal and abnormal echocardiograms, and case studies designed to provide real-word examples. A workbook correlates with the lectures to provide a printable guide for each presentation.  An individual user may earn 13.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credits™.
