The Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography(JASE) brings physicians and sonographers peer-reviewed original investigations and state-of-the-art review articles that cover conventional clinical applications of cardiovascular ultrasound, as well as newer techniques with emerging clinical applications. These include three-dimensional echocardiography, strain and strain rate methods for evaluating cardiac mechanics and interventional applications.

Benefits to authors
We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more. Please click here for more information on our author services.

In this Associate Editor Corner, JASE Editorial Board member and Social Media consultant Jordan Strom, MD, MSc, FASE, interviews JASE Associate Editor Dr. Mark Friedberg. Dr. Friedberg shares his thoughts on the evolution of pediatric echocardiography, myocardial work in animal models of pulmonary hypertension, and the link between prenatal events and postnatal cardiac function over the entire lifespan of an individual.

Figure 7. ME imaging of the AV and root. The ME long-axis view of the aorta in diastole (A) allows measurements of the aorta using the leading edge–to–leading edge technique: sinuses of Valsalva (orange arrow), sinotubular junction (blue arrow), and sinus height (green arrow). The nadir of the right coronary cusp (RCC) is seen anteriorly (red dot) and defines the location of the annular plane. A central coaptation gap can also be appreciated (yellow dot). Withdrawing the probe and reducing the angle results in a UE view, from which the ascending aortic diameter can be measured (green arrowB). Typically, when the midline of the aorta is bisected (C), the interleaflet trigone between the left coronary cusp (L or LCC) and noncoronary cusp (N or NCC) is seen posteriorly (white asteriskA and C); thus, in systole the anterior right cusp (R) is often visualized but no posterior leaflet is seen (bottom right image). The aortic annulus is measured from the inner to inner borders. Multiplanar imaging during 3D acquisition (D) is used to check the quality of the three orthogonal 2D images. In these systolic views, one can clearly appreciate the annular plane (yellow double-headed arrows) in the long-axis view (green sector), SAX view (red sector), and coronal plane (blue sector). A small area of acoustic shadowing (white arrow, red sector) is seen in the SAX view. Panel E demonstrates alignment of the left main (LM) coronary artery ostium (yellow asterisk) in the coronal plane (blue box and 3D-rendered view). The LM height or distance from the virtual annulus plane to the coronary ostium (yellow arrow) is measured from the coronal plane (blue box). The left coronary leaflet (LCC; blue curved line) is seen on the 3D-rendered view and the coronal plane (blue box), and its length is measured from the 2D image. An LCC length that is <2 to 3 mm shorter than the LM height, or an LM height <10 to 11 mm (particularly in the setting of a short root), poses a risk for possible coronary artery obstruction with transcatheter valve implantation. Ao, Aorta; Asc Ao, ascending aorta; LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle; RPA, right PA.

Special JASE Podcast Series

Amer M. Johri

Welcome to Episode #11 of the 2021 JASE Podcast Series. This week, we have a special collaboration between the Canadian Society of Echocardiography live journal club and the JASE Podcast. In this episode, Drs. Shaheeda Ahmed and Michael Hammer join Dr. Johri to discuss the paper: "Routine Use of Contrast on Admission Transthoracic Echo for Heart Failure Reduces the Rate of Repeat Echo during Index Admission" by Lee et al., with a special introduction from Dr. Michael Picard, JASE Editor-in-Chief. Learn more about the utility of contrast-enhanced echo for inpatient care of heart failure patients in this newest edition of the JASE podcast. Sit back, plug in, learn, and enjoy!
