Member Perspective on the Value of the Foundation

Meritorious_Ryan_cropped “Echocardiography, due to its portability, safety and its value in the diagnosis of most heart and circulation conditions, is already used throughout the world. This necessitates a global voice for cardiac ultrasound to speak the same language everywhere. With the growth of telemedicine it will be increasingly necessary and useful to have standardization across international borders. ASE Foundation plays a crucial role in standardizing the practice of echocardiography, which makes a tangible difference in patient care throughout the world.”   Thomas J. Ryan, MD, MBA, FASE  |  Past-President, ASE | ASEF Task Force Chair | Director, Heart and Vascular Center | The Ohio State University
Tajik_rt_web cropped “Echo is the “Heart of Cardiology”. As members of ASE we commit to providing high quality imaging and hemodynamic information leading to best outcomes through lifelong training, education, teaching and research. Support the ASE Foundation to continue to successfully accomplish these missions.”   A. Jamil Tajik, MD | Most Generous ASEF Donor in 2013 | Aurora Cardiovascular Services | St. Luke’s Medical Center
Picard “ASE has had a major impact on the role of echo in the practice of cardiology and the ASE Foundation can be our voice to help set and maintain high quality use of echocardiography. This can be achieved through a strong CME program, development of clinical guidelines for optimum practices in echocardiography, funding research that demonstrates the value of echo and by securing a strong workforce. The ASE Foundation can help on these and many other fronts.”   Michael H. Picard, MD, FASE | Past-President, ASE | Director, Clinical Echocardiography | Massachusetts General Hospital
Zoghbi_150pxH “How can we maintain innovation, continued learning and high clinical standards in an ever evolving field such as echocardiography? The ASE Foundation is the answer and deserves our full support. You can honor a mentor, a friend, or simply support cardiovascular ultrasound, which always directly impacts patient care. You can make a difference!”   William A. Zoghbi, MD, FASE | Past-President, ASE | Director, Cardiovascular Imaging Institute | The Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center
