Returning in April 2024 The 3rd Annual Contrast Echo Summit

The only event dedicated solely to ultrasound enhancing agents in echo!

Introducing the Premier Online Contrast Echo Event: Accessible, Anytime, Anywhere!


Contrast echocardiography is a specialised advanced imaging technique with widespread application in clinical practice. This program has been designed to provide attendees with a broad overview of contrast imaging, followed by deep dive presentations exploring detailed aspects of the technique in a variety of different clinical scenarios, including in the critical care setting. 

Care has been taken to incorporate ASE/EACVI guidelines into talks to demonstrate how and why they should be applied in your daily practice.

This is an incredibly unique program presented by an international faculty of experts with a strong emphasis on the practical application of contrast echocardiography in clinical practice. The event is aimed at anyone involved in quality cardiac ultrasound. 

The majority of the sessions are pre-recorded and then streamed at 2pm on the 18th April 2024 (PST). There are several sessions focussed on the practical how-to aspects of contrast echocardiography, making it an ideal event for all sonographers and physicians involved in contrast imaging. Attendees on the day of the live stream will also have access to a chat room to facilitate discussion between the delegates, and in some instances with the live speakers.

The "MUST-ATTEND" event for anyone involved in contrast echocardiography

ASUM is recognised as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program sponsor through the ARDMS Accepted Continuing Education Evaluation Model   System   (AACEEMS).   Practitioners  who are ARDMS members will also be able to claim CPD for participating in The Contrast Echo Summit program. This also meets the CME requirements for CCI.

The Contrast Echo Summit has been approved as a British Society of Echocardiography accredited course. Participants are eligible for 3 BSE reaccreditation points for completing the Summit Content.

This year's Contrast Echo Summit has partnered with CardioServ LLC to also offer a Physician-Level Registration option for delegates wanting AMA PRA Category 1 credits.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Institute for Advanced Medical Education and CardioServ, LLC. The Institute for Advanced Medical Education is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Institute for Advanced Medical Education designates this activity for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM . Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

AMA Cat 1 CME only available for Physician-Level registration. Credits available for access to replay as well as the live activity.

Certificates of attendance only available with Premium memberships.
