Abstract

Echocardiography encompasses resting and stress transthoracic cardiac ultrasound as well as transesophageal imaging, applications which collectively are essential for the evaluation and management of virtually every form of heart disease. Quality in echocardiography has many dimensions including patient selection, image acquisition, image interpretation, and results communication/reporting. Quality improvement tools and measures have been developed for each of these elements. This chapter provides an overview of echocardiographic methods and applications including different approaches to the use of cardiac ultrasound, advantages and disadvantages and contraindications to echocardiography.
