Abstract

In continuation of a previous publication, the present study will take into account for each application and profile the clinical use, the minimal data settings, the echo data findings, the indications, the quality process, the accreditation requirements, educational tailored pathway contents and modalities. The aim of the present document was to define the main applications of echocardiography and to tailor for each application-derived profile, according with the previous definitions, requirements that clearly identify the indication, objective, clinical situation in which echocardiography is used, educational pathway and training, quality process and accreditation.
