ASE Echo Hawaii 2019 was held at Westin Hapuna Beach Resort from 21-25 Jan. 2019. This meeting presents the latest information on established and emerging cardiovascular ultrasound technologies. Expert U.S. and international faculty discuss state-of-the-art technologies with a particular focus on how they can be effectively applied in the clinical setting.
This year Dr. Kwan Chan (Past CSE President), Dr. Davinder Jassal (VP), and Dr. Francois Tournoux (Board of Director Member) represented us at the Echo Hawaii meeting.
See you if you can identify them our of this group faculty photo. Also test you skills to see how many “celebrity” echo faculty members you can identify.
The meeting in 2019 will be held in Toronto @ Marriott Downtown at CF Toronto Eaton Centre from 11 to 13 April 2019.
The scientific quality of our program has been excellent and we remain the second largest echo meeting in North America! We are blessed to have many outstanding Canadian faculty members who are nationally and internationally recognized, and who serve on several international echo guidelines committees. Planning for our 2019 Annual Echo Weekend is underway – stay tuned. As a CSE member, you will gain substantial savings for the weekend. Please mark your calendar.The registration website will be up in Jan 2019.
Dr. Lawrence Rudski, Dr. Francois Tournoux, and Dr. Chi-Ming Chow participated in a joint session on behalf of CSE with the EACVI at the EuroEcho Imaging Milan, Dec. 2018. The session was titled Imaging the Aorta. This year the EACVI was well attended by Canadian colleagues.

Judges: Drs Arsène Basmadjian (Montreal Heart Institute), Davinder Jassal (Max Rady College of Medecine, University of Manitoba) and Dinesh Thavendiranathan (Toronto General Hospital)

We encourage more young clinicians and investigators to submit their abstracts in the future.
