LIVE WEBINAR: Assessment of Carotid Arterial Plaque by Ultrasound for the Characterization of Atherosclerosis and Evaluation of Cardiovascular Risk

Join Guideline Chair, Amer M. Johri, MD, FASE, and Henrik Sillesen, MD, DMSc, for a free, LIVE webinar, Tuesday, September 22, 1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT, as they review the recently published ASE guideline, Recommendations for the Assessment of Carotid Arterial Plaque by Ultrasound for the Characterization of Atherosclerosis and Evaluation of Cardiovascular Risk. They will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound methods for carotid arterial plaque quantification.

  1. To register, login to your ASE member portal.
  2. Select the ASE Learning Hub from the top red menu.
  3. Register for the webinar here.

By the end of this educational webinar, viewers will be able to:

  • Understand the standard method for carotid arterial plaque quantification recommended by ASE using 2-D or 3-D derived plaque height.
  • Be familiar with other methods of arterial plaque measurement such as plaque score, plaque area, and plaque volume, including their advantages and disadvantages.
  • Understand the clinical context within which carotid arterial plaque quantification enhances cardiovascular risk stratification.

Be familiar with emerging techniques for carotid arterial plaque composition assessment and its role in detecting the vulnerable patient.
