How Novel Transcatheter Therapies are Transforming Echocardiography

By Mentice on May 12, 2021 9:48:25 AM

Today, echocardiography is crucial to patient screening and guidance for novel and complex interventional procedures, and this increases the demand for highly skilled operators. However, training opportunities remain limited. There certainly is still no standard certification process for echocardiography, and education continues to be based off an outdated see one, do one, teach one model. How can interventional teams move toward new training techniques that will save both time and costs, as well as improve patient outcomes in echocardiography and echo-guided interventions?
