Transthoracic echocardiography is one of the most commonly performed cardiac investigations. It can provide comprehensive information about cardiac structure and function, helping to establish a diagnosis and guide therapy.
I am accredited specialist in echocardiography. This means I have undertaken training in echocardiography as part of my cardiology specialist registrar training and gone on to undertake accreditation in adult echocardiography from the British Society of Echocardiography.
BSE accreditation is a formal process to certify competence in basic echocardiography. Accreditation involves a written and practical (video) exam, a collection of full studies & a logbook of cases. Accreditation is recognised throughout the UK & Europe.
