Course/Activity Information

Target Audience: This activity is designed for all cardiovascular sonographers and physicians with a primary interest and knowledge base in the field of cardiovascular imaging, and/or pediatric echocardiography.

Learning Objectives:

• Learn standard pediatric imaging planes to identify anatomy pertinent to C-CHD

• Become familiar with tell-tale echocardiographic findings associated with C-CHD

• Summarize the recommended instrumentation, infrastructure and communication needed, to improve C-CHD patient outcomes at community hospitals

Accreditation Statement:

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

The American Society of Echocardiography designates this article for 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. 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 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program and/or the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) MOC program. It is ASE’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM and ABP MOC points.   Physicians will earn MOC and/or MOCA 2.0 points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.

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

Disclosures: 

According to ACCME policy, ASE implemented mechanisms to resolve all conflicts of interest prior to the planning and implementation of this activity.

While a monetary or professional affiliation with an ineligible company does not necessarily influence a speaker’s presentation, the Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education and policies of the ACCME require that all financial relationships with ineligible companies* be identified and mitigated prior to engaging in an accredited CE activity. In accordance with these policies, ASE actively identified relevant financial relationships between faculty in control of this accredited CE activity and ineligible companies and implemented mitigation strategies to eliminate any potential influence from persons or organizations that may have an incentive to insert commercial bias in this activity. (*Companies that are ineligible to be accredited in the ACCME System (“ineligible companies”) are those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, reselling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.)
