Abstract

High quality appropriately trained technologists (sonographers) and physicians are key components to the successful performance and interpretation of echocardiograms. This chapter will review the training and certifi cation pathways that are available for cardiac sonographers and interpreting physicians. Insuring high reliability processes to train and evaluate the personnel involved in echocardiographic performance and interpretation is a requirement for a high quality program, as is continuing education to ensure familiarity with developments in the field.
