The October CASE is Spookily Good!

The latest issue of CASE, ASE’s open access case reports journal, is available and packed with educational material to share with trainees and colleagues. CASE Editor-in-Chief Dr. Vince Sorrell commented, “It seems like every issue of CASE includes at least one report you need to keep handy as an image-reference in your echo reading room. This issue includes a CASE series demonstrating the normal and pathologic variations of caval and coronary sinus venous anomalies. This is an important report that includes outstanding 3D-CCT image correlations.”

This issue also includes another Congenital Heart Disease article (authored by a sonographer), two cases highlighting the value of Multimodality Imaging, two Hemodynamic Corner cases, and two reports on Cardiac Tumors & Pseudotumors. Dr. Sorrell noted, “Most of us have seen patients with severe mitral annular calcification with or without associated echo-free spaces commonly referred to as liquefaction or caseous necrosis. Some of us have also seen the rare pathologic transformation to fistula formation. Fujiwara and coauthors provide us with an excellent surgically correlated case series of these patients with an absolutely striking video taken in the OR that you simply must see to believe!” Dr. Sorrell’s editorial, “Interpreting the Interpretation,” challenges clinical echocardiographers to continually improve their communication of echo findings to non-specialist colleagues to help improve outcomes.

REMINDER: There are still fee waivers available for sonographer lead authors, sponsored by the Sonography Council, waiting to be claimed by you. Submit your case today! Email Debbie Meyer, Director of Publications (JASE, CASE), or Andie Piddington, Deputy Managing Editor (JASE, CASE), with any questions or to request a case-writing mentorship from an ASE sonographer.
