Congratulations to our three finalists, who have been selected to present their projects on Sunday, June 24 during ASE's Scientific Sessions in Nashville! The finalists are (in alphabetical order):
Achi Ludomirsky: Deep Learning & Artificial Intelligence Techniques
Jennifer Monti: TEE2.0: Untethering TEE from its colonoscopy roots
Team Toronto EchoMasters: Echo GPS: AI-Powered Standard View Capture Advisor
There were over 30 submissions this year, all of which were very interesting and made the judges' task very difficult. In addition to the three finalists who will present live, ASE would also like to recognize the following innovative submissions as part of our Honor Roll:
Duke University team: Automated Analysis of Renal Doppler Waveforms
Michael Henry: Stop Inappropriate Echos
David Jantzen's team: Virtual Reality Education in Echocardiography
Amer Johri's team: RESCU: Remote Emergency Streamed Cardiac POCUS
MagiQuant team: The "instantaneous Dimensionless Index"
David Marmor's team: Solving the problem of blind intubation for TEE
David Playford's team: Aortic Stenosis using AI at the Speed of Life
Ross Upton's team: Ultromics
Thank you again to all of you for all of your efforts to innovate and improve the field of cardiovascular ultrasound, and ultimately patient care. We hope to see you in Nashville to celebrate Echovation Challenge 2018!
