Case Study Submission

Case study submissions are required in order to assess the interpretative and technical quality of the facility. All details of the cardiac anatomy should be visualized adequately. It is understood that technical limitations will occasionally limit the sonographer's ability to adequately define cardiac structures and visualize the myocardium when performing transthoracic echocardiograms; however, the representative transthoracic cases submitted for review should demonstrate all appropriate views of the facility's protocol and be of above-average examination quality. All cases must be complete examinations; limited exams are not acceptable.
