The Houston Echo Review is a two-day virtual course of lectures, interactive discussions, and case presentations designed to prepare cardiovascular specialists for the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) examinations. The course will be a fast-paced review of topics similar to those covered in the ASCexam scheduled for July 2021. The scope of the review is designed to be extensive enough for attendees to be able to identify their areas of strengths and potential weaknesses when designing their own subsequent self-study program in preparation for the NBE exam. Attendees may discover that they would additionally benefit from a more extensive multi day review course. For these reasons, the course is scheduled approximately 90 days prior to the NBE examination.  The course will provide an overview of echo lab quality improvement (QI). Both the clinical content and QI material is beneficial for any practicing echocardiographer regardless of whether not they plan to take the NBE exam. The participant will find this course useful for both the NBE initial and recertification examination preparation.   Sonographers are encouraged to attend to improve their clinical knowledge base. However, this course should not be used as a “stand alone” review for sonographers preparing for their professional credentialing examinations.

The 11th Annual Houston Echo Review: Boot Camp for 2021 Echo Board is offered in cooperation with the America Society of Echocardiography (ASE).

 EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of each lecture in the series, the participant should be able to:

  • Recognize the morphological features of the disease process under discussion based on two-dimensional and M-mode echocardiography as well as the basic clinical applications of newer modalities including three-dimensional imaging and speckle tracking modalities.
  • Cite the most important two-dimensional echo quantitative methods clinically applicable to the cardiovascular disease under discussion.
  • Apply and/or be able to refer to the most appropriate methods for Doppler assessment and quantitative methods of the cardiovascular disease process under discussion.
  • Improve the quality and efficiency of echocardiography laboratories, which will lead to improved patient care after review of recommended Quality Improvement metrics for laboratories.
  • Recognize a spectrum of cardiovascular pathological conditions, including those mentioned above by being presented with up to 100 rapid-paced clinical recognition cases
  • Explain cardiac anatomy and pathology by both transesophageal and transthoracic echo imaging as these, along with stress echocardiography will be incorporated into the didactic and case-based learning components of the exam.
