ASE Guidelines for Recommendations for Multimodality Assessment of Congenital Coronary Anomalies: A Guide from the American Society of Echocardiography

Date: April 28, 2020

Time: 01:00PM - 02:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

During this webinar, Dr. Peter Frommelt, Chair of the latest guideline document published by the American Society of Echocardiography, will provide a comprehensive review of this document and explain the role of multimodality imaging in patients with congenital coronary anomalies. Dr. Frommelt will discuss specific strategies for imaging of each of the known congenital coronary anomalies, and a question and answer period will be included at the end of the presentation. This guideline was developed in collaboration with the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, the Japanese Society of Echocardiography, and the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, and has also been endorsed by 17 ASE International Alliance Partners.

Target Audience:
This webinar is designed for those with a primary interest and knowledge base in the field of echocardiography and for other medical professionals with a specific interest in imaging and the clinical diagnosis and management of patients with congenital coronary anomalies. This includes cardiovascular physicians, other cardiovascular providers, cardiac sonographers, surgeons, cardiac interventionalists, cardiology and anesthesia fellows, residents, research nurses, clinicians, intensivists, and other medical professionals.

Learning objectives: By the end of this presentation, viewers will be able to:

  • Recognize the different anatomic variations of coronary origin and course when congenital coronary anomalies are present
  • Understand the benefits and limitations of different imaging techniques in diagnosing congenital coronary anomalies
  • Describe appropriate imaging strategies for characterization of congenital coronary anomalies when the coronary anomaly is in isolation 
  • Describe appropriate imaging strategies for characterization of congenital coronary anomalies when the coronary anomaly is associated with other forms of congenital heart disease, both pre- and postoperatively

  • Peter C. Frommelt, MD, FASE, Professor, Pediatric Cardiology, Director of Pediatric Echocardiography, Herma Heart Institute, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
