Echovation Challenge

During ASE’s 2015 Strategic Planning Retreat, the Board of Directors recognized the need for ASE to foster innovation and collaboration throughout the field of cardiovascular ultrasound. The Board decided that one of the most compelling ways to directly encourage new applications of technology and the implementation of new technology into everyday clinical practice was to host an innovation competition, and the Echovation Challenge was born. The Echovation Challenge provides a platform and forum for ASE members and others to offer ground-breaking solutions to the challenges that face cardiovascular ultrasound.

The first Echovation Challenge launched in fall 2015, and culminated in a live finals during the 2016 Scientific Sessions in Seattle. To learn more about the Live Finals, including Team bios & videos, Judges, and the Task Force, explore the Echovation Challenge 2016 page.

Echovation Challenge 2017 launched in Fall 2016; five finalists competed in June 2017 during the Scientific Sessions in Baltimore. To see pictures, bios, and more, check out the Echovation Challenge 2017 page.

Echovation Challenge 2018 launched in Fall 2017; five finalists competed in June 2018 during the Scientific Sessions in Nashville. To see more, check out the Echovation Challenge 2018 page.
