Package 1: Basic RCS Review

Earning the Registered Cardiac Sonographer (RCS) credential, offered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International, requires passing a one-part Non-Invasive/Echocardiography Registry Examination which includes ultrasound physics and cardiac ultrasound concepts. This package provides a comprehensive didactic review of the concepts tested on the CCI Registered Cardiac Sonographer exam.

Components of the package include:

  • Cardiac Hemodynamics eCourse
  • Adult Echocardiographer’s Pocket Reference
  • Adult Echo Case Study CD
  • Adult Echocardiography ExamSim


  • Cardiac Hemodynamics eCourse The Cardiac Hemodynamics eCourse is a seven-module series by Mark Harry, RDCS, RVT, REEGT designed to provide the foundation for acquiring a cardiac hemodynamic profile during the echocardiographic exam. The series begins with a module on Cardiac Pressures, followed by modules covering Diastolic Filling, Aortic Stenosis, Aortic Regurgitation, Subaortic Stenosis, Mitral Stenosis, and Mitral Regurgitation. Etiology and diagnostic criteria for each type of pathology is discussed with technical and system optimization tips integrated throughout the series. Mark emphasizes the importance of analyzing the patient’s clinical presentation with the hemodynamic data generated in order to deliver an accurate cardiac hemodynamic profile. A cardiac hemodynamic worksheet is provided to aid in calculating right-sided, left-sided and pulmonary pressures. Case presentations demonstrate the real-life application of the quantification techniques taught throughout the series.

    Cardiac Hemodynamics Viewing Time (with interactive questions): 5 hours 

    Cardiac Hemodynamics Review (optional): 4.0 hours

    Adult Echocardiographer’s Pocket Reference The fourth edition of The Adult Echocardiographer’s Pocket Reference provides the newest American Society of Echocardiography recommendations for valvular stenosis, left ventricular diastolic function, right heart chamber systolic and diastolic evaluation and quantification including coronary artery segmentation, prosthetic heart valves, transcatheter interventions three-dimensional echocardiography, contrast echocardiography and cardiac mechanics. The how-to section has been updated to reflect the recommendations. This concise reference is a must for any sonographer involved in Adult Echocardiography.

    Adult Echo Case Study CD This CD ROM contains 50 case studies designed to help prepare candidates for the video portion of the adult echocardiography certification exam. The author, Terry Reynolds of the Arizona Heart Institute and faculty member of Pegasus Lectures, has developed multiple-choice questions to complement each case study, creating an in-depth self-assessment program. There are more than 200 questions included. This collection of case studies is ideal to expand your library of clinical pathology as well as an excellent tool for assessing the clinical knowledge of students, sonographers, or potential employees. This CD is not MAC compatible.

    Adult Echocardiography ExamSim Program



    The Adult Echocardiography ExamSim program was developed to help sonographers and/or physicians determine their level of expertise in cardiac sonography and to prepare candidates for their credentialing/board exam(s).

    Adult Echocardiography ExamSim Components include:
    Interactive Test-Taking Section
    Timed, full-length exam
    Content weighted according to content outline
    Comprehensive Review
    Patented Intelligent Analysis Package to determine level of exam preparedness

    7.0 Continuing Education Credits (accepted by both CCI and ARDMS)

    In addition to providing simulation of the ARDMS Adult Echocardiography examination, the program uses a patented algorithm to help the user determine their level of preparedness to sit for the exam.

    The patented algorithm mathematically assesses not only performance based on question types, subject topics, and subject subtopics, but it also analyzes keystrokes, testing behaviors, and time parameters to identify precise areas of strengths and weaknesses. The score report can then be used to shorten study time by precisely indicating topics that require further study as well as identifying poor test-taking habits.

    The review section is much more than just the correct answer to the questions. In review mode, the detailed explanations are included to make certain that the concept being tested is well understood. By using this invaluable ExamSim tool to prepare for your Adult Echo exam, you will have studied the key concepts, focused on your areas of weakness, and used your valuable study time efficiently and effectively.
