ASE Releases New Guide to Performing the Comprehensive Transthoracic Echocardiographic Examination

Medical experts have released “Guidelines for Performing a Comprehensive Transthoracic Echocardiographic Examination in Adults: Recommendations from the American Society of Echocardiography.” ASE first established recommendations for the comprehensive transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) exam in 1980, and TTE has continued to be a centerpiece of ASE’s educational resources over the years. With the evolution of both technology and performance, this new guideline addresses these changes and aims to provide new guidance to enhance imaging quality and empower echocardiographers to provide the best possible care for their patients. Filled with original illustrations, instructive videos, and detailed instructions to provide an effective resource for all echocardiographers, this document gives a comprehensive view of scanning techniques and protocols for today’s cardiovascular imaging.
