Friends Don’t Let Friends Miss Out on Echo CME

Have you earned credits for continuing medical education (CME) by reading the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE)? If you have not, then you have been missing out on a great opportunity to “stay current” in a user-friendly and affordable manner, and you might even be short-changing your patients. Do you have friends who work as cardiac sonographers or as non-invasive cardiologists? Do they know that they too can earn CME credits by reading JASE? If they don’t, let them know about this terrific opportunity; otherwise, you are not being a good friend. Let’s consider some details.

In an Editor’s Page published in JASE about one year ago, I described the rationale for and the purpose of JASE’s CME program. I also noted our intent to publish at least 10 CME articles per year. Today, I am proud to state that our 9 th CME article of the year appears in this issue of the Journal , and to let you know that we will publish one more CME article in the November 2010 issue. By the end of this year, JASE readers will have had the opportunity to study the following articles and (by answering a series of questions correctly) to earn 1 CME credit for each of them:

2010 Issue Topic of Article Author
February Patent Foramen Ovale Di Tullio
March Non-invasive Evaluation of Pulmonary Hemodynamics Milan et al
March Role of M-mode Echocardiography Feigenbaum
April Molecular Imaging of Vascular Phenotype Lindner
April Myocardial Mechanics using Speckle Tracking Echocardiography Geyer et al
May Quantitation during Pediatric Echocardiography Lopez et al
July Echocardiographic Assessment of the Right Heart Rudski et al
August Causes of Echocardiographic Left Ventricular Hypertrophy Weidemann et al
October Pseudoaneurysm of the Mitral Aortic Intervalvular Fibrosa Sudhakar et al
November Safety of Transesophageal Echocardiography Hilberath et al
