ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course

22nd Annual ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course

Registration Now Open!

ASE has specifically designed the ASCeXAM/ReASCE Review Course as a preparatory course for the National Board of Echocardiography, Inc.TM (NBE) ASCeXAM® and ReASCE® examinations. Lectures given will emphasize illustrative cases and as such will not be “canned talks” from other cardiovascular ultrasound courses. This review course will cover all aspects of cardiovascular ultrasound essential to these examinations, including physics, valvular heart disease, ischemic heart disease, congenital heart disease, and new technologies. The expert faculty will use case studies, lectures and interactive sessions to help prepare the attendee for the ASCeXAM® or ReASCE® examinations. The Review Course has been designed with the computer-based examination administration in mind.

What is NEW for this course in 2021?

  • Updated case studies and lectures
  • New Board Review Questions after each lecture to help you better prepare for the exam,
    plus unlimited access to review the questions
  • Exclusive time with expert faculty to receive answers to your questions, different from
    what is included with the course material
  • Updated virtual platform with high-definition video playback

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be better able to:

  • Explain the essential physical principles of cardiac ultrasound.
  • Recognize common ultrasound artifacts and their genesis.
  • Estimate systolic function using standard M-mode and 2D echocardiography, as well as newer modalities such as strain imaging and 3D echocardiography.
  • Identify and quantitate valvular heart disease severity.
  • Describe the application of Doppler in the assessment of hemodynamics and diastolic function.
  • Perform clinically relevant calculations of valve areas and intracardiac pressures.
  • Explain proven techniques for interpreting stress echocardiographic examinations.
  • Differentiate features of cardiac tamponade, constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy.
  • List appropriate applications of echocardiography.
  • Recognize newer applications of echocardiography such as myocardial contrast.

Simulation Exam

Did you know that ASE has an online simulation exam? You may want to take this practice exam either before or after the course to determine where to concentrate your effort.

The ASCeXAM/ReASCE Online Practice Exam Simulation is designed to prepare physicians for the National Board of Echocardiography’s ASCeXAM or ReASCE certification examinations. Developed by renowned experts in the field of echocardiography, the test bank consists of 300 multiple choice questions containing over four hundred images and video. In addition to objective based questions, case studies are included to evaluate your knowledge of the field. During your eighteen week access, you will be given the opportunity to take two simulated exams consisting of one hundred fifty questions each, assessing your skills and knowledge in all areas. You may repeat these exams a total of six times. The grading and feedback for all six attempts will be saved. In addition to an overall grade, a percentage breakdown of your incorrect and correct answers over the five categories will be provided for each attempt, so that you may focus your study accordingly. Feedback includes explanations of the correct and incorrect answers, offering valuable instruction.

To introduce you to the exam format and to ensure that you are comfortable with the method of answering the exam questions, a practice quiz is provided before you begin your attempts at the full exam simulation. You may take this quiz as many times as you wish.

* The educational content of the quiz is just as important as what is contained in the exam simulation.   Click here to learn how to purchase this important self-assessment tool
