Echocardiography

All trainees participate in the performance of echocardiography and Doppler echocardiography, and understand the indications, risks and benefits of transesophageal and stress echocardiography, as well as the principles of evolving techniques, such as intravascular ultrasound.

Those trainees who wish to perform these latter techniques or to direct an echocardiography laboratory have additional training.
