    • 3-D echo and myocardial mechanics
    • Congenital heart disease
    • The role of echo in percutaneous interventions including transcatheter aortic valve replacement
  • Alignment with ASE guidelines

  CME Information
  CME Information

The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

ACCF designates this educational activity for a maximum of 85 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Although offering the CME credit noted above, EchoSAP 7 does not provide extensive training or offer certification in the field of cardiology.

Target Audience

This program is intended for all professionals involved in the field of echocardiography.

Learner Objectives
Upon completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the physics and instrumentation necessary for conducting echocardiography.
  • Demonstrate the application of Doppler principles to assessing hemodynamics
  • Correlate cardiac gross pathology with echocardiographic images.
  • Explain when to use echo in diagnosing and treating patients with CAD, valvular heart disease, pericardial disease, congenital heart disease, heart failure with reduced and preserved ejection fraction.
  • Identify a wide range of echocardiographic images, including those of “normal” patients and those with cardiac pathology.
  • Identify echocardiographic features of unpalliated and palliated congenital heart abnormalities and their late complications.
  • Evaluate cardiac chamber size, left ventricular systolic and diastolic function and right ventricular systolic function.
  • Interpret transesophageal images and distinguish attributes and limitations versus transthoracic echocardiography.
  • Diagnose and differentiate cardiac masses.
  • Diagnose and distinguish diseases of the aorta.
  • Relate when 3D echo is the most appropriate diagnostic tool to use in evaluating their patients.
  • Describe when strain echo is the most appropriate diagnostic tool to use in evaluating their patients.
  • Cite when contrast echo is the most appropriate diagnostic tool to use in evaluating their patients.
  • Identify new echo techniques that have emerged over the past ten years and explain the clinical scenarios in which they should be applied.
