eCASE Learning

CASE, a global, open access online journal, welcomes case reports where cardiovascular ultrasound is used to diagnose or help solve a clinical problem. Examples include cases where cardiovascular ultrasound was used as a critical component of a multimodality approach to disease diagnosis or evaluation or where it was used to detect unusual or atypical disease manifestations. Case-based learning (CBL) is an established approach used across disciplines where learners apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios, promoting higher levels of cognition. Case-based learning (CBL) uses stories about individuals facing decisions or dilemmas. The eCASE Learning based series consists of four “cases” from CASE that are topic specific relevant to what our current members/learners are requesting more education about.

Target Audience:

This activity is designed for all cardiac sonographers, cardiovascular physicians, and cardiovascular pediatricians with a primary interest, and knowledge base in the field of echocardiography; in addition, residents, physician assistants, researchers, clinicians, intensivists, and other medical professionals.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
  2. Use fetal and post-natal echocardiography, recognize the presence and clinical significance of anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery.
  3. Describe the factors that contribute to normal closure of the ductus arteriosus at childbirth and what may cause the ductus to remain patent.
  4. Describe the potential consequences of undiagnosed incomplete Kawasaki disease.
  5. Describe the risk factors for native pulmonary valve endocarditis (PVE) and recognize that PVE may occur in the absence of predisposing risk factors.

Accreditation:
The American Society of Echocardiography is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation:
The American Society of Echocardiography designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1.0 MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM). Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the activity and individual assessment of and feedback to the learner, enables the learner to earn up to 1 MOC points in the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.

ARDMS, CCI and Sonography Canada recognize ASE’s certificates and have agreed to honor the credit hours toward their registry requirements for sonographers.

Physician Assistants may claim category 1 credits for completing this activity. NCCPA accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME or a recognized state medical society.

The American Society of Echocardiography is committed to ensuring that its educational mission and all sponsored educational programs are not influenced by the special interests of any corporation or individual, and its mandate is to retain only those authors whose financial interests can be effectively resolved to maintain the goals and educational integrity of the activity. While a monetary or professional affiliation with a corporation does not necessarily influence an author’s presentation, the Essential Areas and policies of the ACCME require that any relationships that could possibly conflict with the educational value of the activity be resolved prior to publication and disclosed to the audience.
