Guideline Document Translations Expanded

ASE has expanded its library of translated guideline documents with the addition of a new Spanish translation of ” Recommendations for Multimodality Cardiac Imaging in Patients with Chagas Disease.”  The translation and review of this document was led by a team of physician volunteers, Aldo Prado, MD, FASE, Juan Ignacio Cotella, MD, and Harry Acquatella, MD, FASE.

Many of the guideline documents have been translated in Chinese, French, Georgian, Japanese, Persian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Please share these with colleagues who may benefit from them. All ASE Guidelines are freely available to all members of the global medical community in ASE’s effort to improve the quality of patient care worldwide.

ASE Headquarters – COVID-19 Update

Beginning March 26, 2020, the county where the ASE Headquarters is located is under a government order to “Stay at Home” due to the spread of the coronavirus. These “Stay at Home” recommendations continue to be in effect and depend on the infection rates in the County/State. ASE will keep all but essential personnel telecommuting until a time when it is judged safe to return to work. We are not suspending or closing operations; our employees will remain working and providing excellent customer service to our members and the cardiovascular ultrasound community. However, ASE will slightly modify its official open hours to 9 AM – 4 PM Eastern TimeMonday-Friday. Should you need to get in touch with a staff person, call our main office at 919-861-5574 and a phone list by department will be available. A staff directory is also available here. All general questions can also be sent through ASE@ASEcho.org. Thank you and our best wishes for your continued safety.
