ASE 2019 - American Society of Echocardiography Scientific Session is organized by American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and will be held from Jun 21 - 25, 2019 at Oregon Convention Center, Portland, Oregon, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 32.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Description: ASE 2019 in Portland is the premier meeting to present your cutting edge research on the latest advances in cardiovascular ultrasound and cases illustrating evolutions in patient care. The overarching theme of the 30th Annual Scientific Sessions is echo’s role as a bridge builder. Echo is uniquely positioned at the center of many worlds, able to combine amazing complementary strengths: at the intersection of imaging, physiology and physiopathology, guiding interventional medicine and surgery, bringing together health providers of many specialties, sonographers, engineers, basic scientists, physiologists, and epidemiologists. Echo holds a primary position in patient care being simultaneously affordable, scalable, and internationally accessible. • Listen to and discuss the latest science in interventional echo, valve diseases, heart failure, diastology, cardio-oncology, technology, circulation, and artificial intelligence, to cite just a few. • In addition to the Imaging Essentials, Myocardial Function, Valves, Circulation, Perioperative, Ischemia/Perfusion/ Stress, and Pediatric tracks, you can discover what point of care ultrasound is all about in a workshop Friday and in several sessions. • To better help you navigate the integration of echocardiography in the changing healthcare environment, come to the threehour Value Summit! We have also developed several multimodality sessions to allow you to best position your echo practice. • To answer the questions and needs of aspiring echocardiographers, come to the Early Career track and mingle with the faculty in these smaller sessions. • Enjoy the many hands-on learning labs, including 3D Volume and Function, 3D Cropping, 3D Printing, Virtual Reality, 3D in CHD, and Strain. New session formats are being used in a number of the sessions including more team discussions and interactions. • Engage with the experts during the Chalk Talks for an opportunity to discuss popular topics like Doppler, Strain, 3D, Social Media, Diastology, and how to get your research published. • Network with the faculty in smaller settings, both for echocardiographers and sonographers, at many organized and informal events. • Echo progresses with research. We welcome your best science with the Arthur E. Weyman Young Investigator’s Award Competition, the Brian Haluska Sonographer Research Award Competition… and a novel Twitter case competition! • And let’s not forget our educational game-shows…fresh this year, Stump the Stars where gifted juniors present exceptional cases to echo champions…also, Echo Jeopardy (adult) and Pediatric Echo Jeopardy are back.

FM LQ: Functional Mobilization Lower Quadrant is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Jul 11 - 14, 2019 at Providence St Vincent Medical Center, Portland, Oregon, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 31 Contact Hours. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: This approach developed and taught by Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, presents the dynamic principles and procedures of Functional MobilizationTM as an evaluation and treatment component of the Functional Manual Therapy® treatment model. Functional MobilizationTM couples active and resisted movement (PNF) with soft tissue and joint mobilization to facilitate normalization of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions. The participant is trained to evaluate each movement segment through the use of PNF patterns and to combine the selective pattern into the full trunk and extremity patterns. Instruction will emphasize the treatment of both hypomobile structures and the stabilization of hypermobile segments with prolonged holds to promote activation of the core muscle’s contraction. Functional MobilizationTM dynamically integrates the principles and procedures of PNF with soft tissue and joint mobilization for each technique. Instruction will emphasize mobile and hypermobile structures, stabilize hypermobile articulations and reeducation of the motor system. Course Objectives: • Develop specific Functional Mobilization™ progression strategies to enhance functional capacity of the lower quadrant. • Develop competence in the assessment and treatment of focus areas: lumbar spine, sacrum, innominate, coccyx, hip, knee and lower limb neurovascular treatment. • Develop home exercises to augment the treatment program. • Discuss the evidence for the FMLQ material.
