May Issue of JASE Online Now

The state-of-the-art review article, “Fact or Artifact in Two-Dimensional Echocardiography: Avoiding Misdiagnosis and Missed Diagnosis,” by Philippe B. Bertrand, MD, MSc, Robert A. Levine, MD, Eric M. Isselbacher, MD, MSc, and Pieter M. Vandervoort, MD appears in the May issue of JASE. When asked the impetus for choosing this topic, Dr. Vandervoort, from Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg healthcare facility in Genk, Belgium, said, “In today’s world of ever faster technological evolution and increasing expectations on quality of care, correct understanding and interpretation of echocardiographic images can make all the difference. We hope this paper will help you make that difference for your patients.” Included with the article are 21 videos, excellent for use in teaching, that show things such as reverberation artifact in the left atrial appendage mimicking thrombus and also the genesis of a side-lobe artifact. The May JASE also includes articles on right ventricular volume and function, left ventricular function, echocardiography in children and fetuses, vascular heart disease, coronary heart disease, and cardiac allograft vasculopathy. Also in this JASE is an editorial from ASE President Susan E. Wiegers, MD, FASE and Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions President James C. Blankenship, MD, “Concerns regarding the 2015 ACR/ ACC/ AHA/ AATS/ ACEP/ ASNC/ NASCI/ SAEM/ SCCT/ SCMR/ SCPC/ SNMMI/ STR/ STS: Appropriate Utilization of Cardiovascular Imaging in Emergency Department Patients with Chest Pain.”

Give Us Your Best Shot!

In recent years, we’ve been impressed by photographs taken by ASE members while they were traveling the world to participate in various humanitarian events. These photographs have inspired and motivated us. As ASE members, there is no doubt that you excel at taking images of the heart. Now we’d like to give you the opportunity to share the images you’ve taken from the heart. Perhaps you took a special photo of a child you met along the way, the chaos of traffic in India, a marketplace in Rwanda, daily life in Hanoi, or new friends in Argentina. We invite you to share these heartfelt memories (and tell us what they mean to you) for a special photo exhibition, Images from the Heart, to be held during ASE 2016 in Seattle, June 10-14, 2016. We’ll start accepting submissions February 1. In the meantime, click here for more information.

ABIM Changes MOC Policy

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Board of Directors has unanimously approved a policy change in response to concerns from program directors, society leadership and others in the internal medicine community regarding the link between Maintenance of Certification (MOC) enrollment and certification status. Effective immediately, diplomates who are meeting all other programmatic requirements will not lose certification simply for failure to enroll in MOC. They will be reported as “Certified, Not Participating in MOC” if they choose not to enroll in the program. For more information visit ABIM’s blog here.

ASE Members who obtain MOC credit via ASEUniversity or any of ASE’s Live Courses have their MOC credits transferred to ABIM free of charge.
