Description

In this ASE Webinar, Dr. Patricia Pellikka, chair of the writing group, will present ASE's new 2020 Guidelines for Performance, Interpretation, and Application of Stress Echocardiography in Ischemic Heart Disease. The currently recommended methodology for performing stress echocardiography in patients with known or suspected ischemic heart disease will be discussed. Interpretation of stress echocardiography and its application to various clinical settings will be illustrated in video examples. New information from the guidelines regarding the role of quantitative assessment of ischemia will be described. The increasing role of stress echo in assessment of children and young adults will be explained. The requirements for training and maintenance of competency will be reviewed.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the currently recommended methods for performing exercise and pharmacologic stress echocardiography
  • Characterize the stress modality specific differences in left ventricular responses in the presence and absence of ischemia 
  • Interpret examples of stress echocardiography for assessment of ischemia in common clinical settings
  • Appreciate the role of quantitative regional assessment, including deformation imaging, in stress echocardiography
  • Understand the indications for stress echocardiography, including its application in children and young adults
