Type of CMEs granted – 2 Vascular Technology, 2.5 SPI, 0.5 MSK, and 1.0 Other SDMS CMEs

This Live Webinar is tailored to sonographers interested in a multitude of topics. The sonographer will learn how to protect themselves from MSK injury by incorporating fitness into their life. For those of you interested in Point of Care POCUS topics, we have several lined up! Learn about the aorta, DVT, and a basic MSK exam. Can physics be fun? We think so! Join us as we break down the angle of insonation and attenuation. Confused about pelvic venous disorders? Join us as we unravel topics like venous compression, pelvic congestion, and more!

Part 2 – ESP’s Echo Day – Sunday, May 23, 2021 – 6 CMEs – $50

Type of CMEs granted – 6 Adult Echo SDMS CMEs

This Live Webinar is tailored to echocardiographers. Echocardiographers will enjoy this live, interactive course by two dynamic leading sonographers Alicia Armour and Ashlee Davis. Enjoy deep-diving into topics on measurements from M-Mode to 3D, history, and basics of 3D, and advanced quantification with 3D. Explore types and physiology of mitral regurgitation, tips, and tricks with AR and AS, and discussions on types of surgical and minimally invasive treatments for MR and AS.

Part I - Saturday 5/22/21 - ESP's POCUS/Vascular/SPI/Fitness for the Sonographer

Speaker: William B Schroedter, BS, RVT, RPhS, FSVU

Description: Attenuation is a loss of ultrasound energy as it travels through the tissues. Ultimately attenuation impacts and limits our ability to use ultrasound clinically. Numerous factors contribute to this loss of energy including phenomena that provide the basis of our ability to obtain a diagnostic image.  Attenuation is a broad category that encompasses several phenomena. To optimize our use of medical ultrasound, it is important to understand what is happening as the energy moves through the patient’s tissue. This presentation will explore those issues with clinical examples to demonstrate.

Speaker: William B Schroedter, BS, RVT, RPhS, FSVU

Description: As ultrasound energy moves through the tissues and encounters a different tissue that results in the reflection of that energy, the angle of insonation has a profound effect on the reflection. This affects not only grayscale imaging but has a profound impact on Doppler data. This presentation will focus on vascular evaluation because, in our experience, failure to appreciate the Doppler angle of insonation is the primary source of error in vascular applications. Starting with a review of the ultrasound physics involved, the issues surrounding the impact of Doppler angle and techniques necessary to avoid pitfalls and potential diagnostic errors will be explained.

Speaker: Brian J Tollefson, MD, FACEP, RMSK, RDMS, CAQ SPORTS MEDICINE

Description: In this lecture, you will learn the definition and utility of the Point of Care (POCUS) Exam. We all know holding a transducer is easy, however, understanding the basic physics of ultrasound is essential for proper diagnosis. We will discuss the basic concepts of which transducer is best when scanning different sections of the body.

Speaker: Brian J Tollefson, MD, FACEP, RMSK, RDMS, CAQ SPORTS MEDICINE

Description: In this lecture, you will learn basic venous anatomy and pathophysiology of the lower extremity and how to perform a Point of Care duplex for the diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis. Get inside the mind of an ER physician and learn best-in-class tricks of the trade to arrive at a quick interpretation.

Speaker: Brian J Tollefson, MD, FACEP, RMSK, RDMS, CAQ SPORTS MEDICINE

Description: This lecture will teach you everything you need to know regarding the Point of Care Ultrasound of the aorta and its major branches. Quick assessment and interpretation of your finding are key.

Speaker: Brian J Tollefson, MD, FACEP, RMSK, RDMS, CAQ SPORTS MEDICINE

Descriptions: This lecture will discuss the basics sonographic principles of the Point of Care MSK Ultrasound. Learn the sonographic appearance of normal bones, tendons, ligaments, etc. In contrast, we will review the appearance of pathologic MSK tissue. Gain confidence in your abilities to differentiate between structures with best-in-class tips from ESP’s MSK physician expert.

Speaker: Steve Bernhardt, RDMS RVT RPhS

Descriptions: Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders in Sonography are at an all time high. This lecture will highlight the importance of incorporating resistance exercises specific to preventing work related injury of the upper back, lower back, neck, shoulders, and arms. Let us help you develop a long term prevention plan to prevent this potential career ending problem.

Speaker: Sara Skjonsberg BS, RVT, RPhS

Descriptions: Seasoned sonographers alike think performing pelvic venous ultrasounds can be one of the most complicated ultrasounds we perform. Why is it considered complicated? We know the anatomy…. Or do we? In this lecture, you will learn about pelvic venous disorders.  Listen as one of the leading experts in pelvic venous ultrasound breaks down and simplifies the protocol and how to interpret the ultrasound findings. Newly published treatment algorithms will be covered.  Let us help you break down this complicated exam into palatable pieces of information so that you may go back to your vascular lab and perform the best exam ever!

Part II - Sunday 5/23/21 - ESP's Echo Day

Speaker: Ashlee M. Davis, ACS, RDCS, BSMI, FASE

Description: Ever wonder about the history of measurements in echocardiography? This lecture will review the history of measurements as well as provide an in-depth discussion on the benefits and caveats regarding 3D.  We will also introduce 3D measurements.

Speaker: Alicia Armour, MA, RDCS, FASE

Description: 3D is primetime, let us explore how this came to be and discuss all the nuances regarding the benefits and caveats for use. To apply it, you must learn the basic use and feel comfortable with your anatomical assessment.

Speaker: Ashlee M. Davis, ACS, RDCS, BSMI, FASE

Description: In this lecture learn how to perform 3D advanced quantification. We will discuss the benefits and caveats as well as explore its use in the clinical echo lab.

Speaker: Alicia Armour, MA, RDCS, FASE

Description: It is all about Mitral Regurgitation! In this lecture learn the types and physiology behind Mitral Regurgitation. We will review the standard measurements and quantifications as well as discuss selection of measurements and different mechanisms.

Speaker: Ashlee M. Davis, ACS, RDCS, BSMI, FASE

Description: Assessment of the aortic valve is essential. Over the years we have gathered several tips and tricks for obtaining good data. We will review the standard measurements for their best use in quantifying pathology in the aorta and the physiology behind the flow.

Speaker: Alicia Armour, MA, RDCS, FASE

Description: This lecture will discuss the types of surgical and minimally invasive treatments for MR and AS. We will review best practices in the assessment post valve repair and/or replacement and the essential key tips for follow-up echocardiography.
