 ASE2019 30 Years of Innovation
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:The role of cardiovascular ultrasound has expanded rapidly and is at the core of modern, high-quality healthcare around the world. For this reason, the theme of this year’s meeting, “30 Years of Innovation” is overarching, highlighting the complementary strengths of cardiovascular ultrasound at the intersection of imaging, physiology, physiopathology, interventional medicine, and surgery. We are bringing together healthcare providers of many specialties, not only cardiologists and sonographers, but also pediatricians, point of care clinicians, anesthesiologists, interventionalists, vascular specialists, surgeons, veterinarians, nurses, researchers, engineers, and more. Our program committee has created a cutting-edge educational scientific program featuring everything you have come to expect from a premier scientific meeting.
