American Society of Echocardiography and Ke Labs Announce Software Collaboration

"Test and teach" application helps develop cardiac ultrasound imaging quality, education through case study analysis

June 22, 2015 - The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and Ke Labs jointly announced in May an agreement to co-develop and co-market a new cardiac ultrasound software application. The application is designed to ensure quality and consistency of cardiac ultrasound image review - both quantitatively and qualitatively - and inform and educate users on interesting cases, new techniques and other changes. This medical imaging quality management software tool is generally referred to as the "Echocardiography Test and Teach Application," and it has been designed through the expert guidance of Harvey Feigenbaum, M.D., FASE with the Krannert Institute of Cardiology at Indiana University Health and founder of the ASE.

The software will be made available to both individuals and institutions through an annual subscription software license. It represents a hands-on, real-world training experience, without being tied to imaging devices. Users are tested on measurements and interpretations for a wide range of case study types, and results are both numerically and visually compared to those of experts. Case studies incorporate valuable teaching points. Administrator capabilities for the enterprise version include the ability to review results, both individually and collectively, to analyze results through a robust set of data analytics tools, and to export and/or print results. These administrative capabilities can be used to support an institution's fulfillment of accreditation requirements. Since the software is cloud-based, users can access it anytime and anywhere. New case studies and software features will be automatically delivered to users.
