Abstract

Appropriate selection of patients for an echocardiographic study is an important aspect of quality for echocardiography laboratories. Criteria to assist in selecting the right test for the right patients have been developed using the Appropriate Use Criteria methodology employed by the American College of Cardiology. The application of these criteria plays an important role in assuring high quality in patient selection. A number of studies will be reviewed that analyze the application of the appropriate use criteria in different clinical settings.
