What you will learn

Course description: 

Automated Cardiac Motion Quantification (aCMQ) is a clinically focused tool for measuring cardiac tissue motion and strain. Such measures have been shown to be very useful for evaluating a variety of cardiac motion abnormalities and has been proven to be a useful tool in the evaluation of cardiac function. The ASE and the EACVI speckle task force have made recommendations for a usercentered workflow. the document clearly recommends how to segment the left ventricle, how the GLS should be calculated, where the strain values should be taken and what are the appropriate bull’s eye for strain imaging, etc. Philip’s aCMQ has been created to align with these recommendations. This virtual class will be an overview of how to use the aCMQ Application in the QLAB On and Off-cart to calculate Global Longitudinal Strain (GLS).



Course objectives: 

After attending this program, the learner should be able to:

  • Explain and discuss the recommendations of the ASE and the EACVI speckle task force for a user-centered workflow using Automated Cardiac Motion Quantification A.I. (aCMQ A.I.) QLAB to calculate Global Longitudinal Strain (GLS).
  • Discuss the Preferences for Configuration Options that are recommended based on the feedback from clinical experts.
  • Explain multiple ways to edit and confirm Aortic Valve Closure Timing.
  • Demonstrate the correct placement of the analysis reference points for accurate quantification of GLS.  
  • Explain how to recognize when the reference points placement needs to be edited and adjusted.
  • Discuss the different ways of displaying the GLS results.
