Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the ASE’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
The National Board of EchocardiographyTM (NBE) requires 15 hours of echocardiography-specific CME for both ReASCE® and RePTE® recertification. This activity contains 29.75 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM that can be used toward recertification requirements.
ARDMS, CCI, and Sonography Canada recognize ASE’s certificates and have agreed to honor the credit hours toward their registry requirements for sonographers.
All or a portion of this educational activity may meet the CME requirement for IAC Echocardiography accreditation.

The American Society of Echocardiography is committed to ensuring that its educational mission and all educational programs are not influenced by the special interests of any corporation or individual, and its mandate is to retain only those speakers whose financial interests can be effectively resolved to maintain the goals and educational integrity of the program. While a monetary or professional affiliation with a corporation does not necessarily influence a speaker’s presentation, the Essential Areas and policies of the ACCME require that any relationships that could possibly conflict with the educational value of the program be resolved prior to the educational session and disclosed to the audience.
