American Society of Echocardiography

The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and KeLabs have collaborated to develop Echo Test and Teach.

Designed with the expert guidance of Dr. Harvey Feigenbaum, known as the "Father of Echocardiography", Echo Test and Teach is a one-of-a-kind software application for improving consistency and accuracy in the measurement and interpretation of cardiac ultrasound images as well as to educate users on interesting cases and new techniques.

Real-World Training

Offers users a hands-on, real-world training experience without being tied to imaging devices through a simulation of echo cases

Enhanced Patient Care

Enhances patient care by reducing variability in the measurement and interpretation of cardiac ultrasound images.

Web-Based

Users simply need a browser and internet connection to access the echocardiography case simulator

Case Content

The case simulator puts the participant in a simulated echocardiographic reading station. He or she will be presented with a series of cases for interpretation and/or measurement. The available images are to be reviewed and then a report generated from a diagnostic tree with numerous possible comments, just as is done in the real world of echocardiography. This is not a multiple choice quiz where the answer is present and you need to guess which one it is. The learning premise is that you will remember that which you got wrong longer than that which you got right. Users will have ample opportunity to learn from your mistakes.

Case improvements have been made to accommodate a wider audience, such as sonographers in training, cardiology fellows and non-cardiologists who conduct point-of-care echocardiography.

In general, case content is divided into two segments:

Practice Cases - We offer both Measurement and Interpretation case types.

Review Cases - These are the cases required to achieve CME credit.  They are updated on a quarterly basis.

“Over the past three years, the Ke Labs’ [Echo Test and Teach product] has become an indispensable component to our echocardiographic missions of teaching, patient care and research.”

Josh

“Throughout med school, I had been exposed to echo in a variety of settings, but using this was definitely the most educational of all of them.

Ben

“Overall, this is an invaluable tool to all level learners including medical students, residents and cardiology fellows who desire a hands-on approach to learning echocardiography.

Eli

“[The Echo Test and Teach product] further supported the idea of learning by mistakes. The scenario-based learning also helped to be able to easily take the learning experience to real patient applications.

Zach

“I would highly recommend [the Echo Test and Teach product] to those in need of an opportunity to enhance the quality and efficiency of the work they do.”

Webcast: 'Moving from Quantity to Quality'

The American Society of Echocardiography hosted an interactive webcast featuring Dr. Harvey Feigenbaum where he addressed the issue of reimbursement being tied to quality instead of quantity, while demonstrating the features and usability of Echo Test and Teach and explaining how the tool can reduce variability while improving patient care.
