Trends and videos for new cardiac ultrasound echocardiography technology advances at ASE

ASE Announces Meeting Highlights for 28th Annual Scientific Sessions — The program includes learning opportunities from the basics of clinical imaging, to the most sophisticated advances in microbubble gene delivery, to the determination of the best use of echocardiography in value-driven healthcare. 

VIDEO: Trends and Advances in Echocardiography at ASE 2016 — Interview with MD Buyline clinical analysts Jon Brubaker and Sabrina Newell at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 annual meeting. They highlighted trends they have seen in cardiac  strain imaging, 3-D echo, bubble contrast, interventional echo, structural heart, and point-of-care ultrasound. 

VIDEO: Editor's Choice of Most Innovative New Cardiac Ultrasound at ASE 2016 — DAIC/ITN editor Dave Fornell shares some of the innovative new technologies on the show floor of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 annual meeting. 

VIDEO: Assessing Cardiotoxicity Response With Cardio-Oncology Echo Imaging — Interview with Federico Asch, M.D., FACC, FASE, associate director of the echocardiography core lab at Medstar Health Research Institute and assistant professor of medicine (cardiology) at Georgetown University, at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 annual meeting. Asch discusses the technology used for cardio-oncology cardiotoxcity assessments and how to set up these types of collaborative programs between oncology and cardiology.

VIDEO: What is Required for Interventional Echo - Discussion With Rebecca Hahn — Interview with Rebecca Hahn, M.D., FASE, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 meeting. She is an expert in the new subspecialty of interventional echo and discussed considerations for hospitals thinking of creating interventional echo programs to help guide complex transcatheter structural heart procedures in the cath lab or hybrid OR.

Requirements for Interventional Echocardiographers — Article explaining what is needed to create an intervntional echo program to support structural heart and transcatheter valve programs.

Key Technology Highlights in Echocardiography at ASE 2016 — A round up of news and videos about new cardiac ultrasound technology discussed in sessions and on the expo floor of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 meeting

Automation Enhances, Streamlines Echocardiography — Article explaining the latest cardiac ultrasound systems include artificial intelligence, automatic quantification, and less dependence on operator expertise.

Top Trends in Cardiac Ultrasound — Article offering insights into cardiovascular ultrasound at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 Conference.

VIDEO: Transcatheter Structural Heart Procedure Navigation Technology Advances — Interview with Stephen Little, M.D., medical director of the Valve Clinic at the Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center, at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2016 annual meeting. He explains the technologies his center is using to aid transcatheter structural heart procedure navigation, including TAVR, transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), LAA occlusion, and septal defect occlusions. 

VIDEO: Expanding Role for Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging — Machine learning is now being commercialized in medical imaging products designed to help improve workflow efficiency and augment the clinical user, not replace them. Steve Holloway with the U.K.-based healthcare market intelligence firm Signify Research discussed the expanding roles of artificial intelligence in imaging applications at the 2017 HIMSS healthcare IT conference.
