Hello, just got some great news about Echocardiography Training. We wanted to share this with the Echocardiography and other Ultrasound readers of this blog.
The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging just created this new Echcardiography Training site. It is a knowledge based platform in the form of a Wiki Encyclopedia.
They describe Echocardiography Training as:
“Dear Friends of echocardiography, welcome to Wikiecho !
Have you ever searched the internet for reliable answers about echocardiography related questions? With WikiEcho, the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) is now offering a free, up-to-date and reliable online encyclopaedia for all people interested in echocardiography. A large number of enthusiastic authors have already contributed over the past few months and from December 2012 the website is open to all users. Please help to make WikiEcho grow by participating actively in the discussions and writing your own articles. As in any wiki, contributions and changes will be published immediately, but to reassure you about the quality of the content, WikiEcho has a special feature: articles will be reviewed by an EACVI board of echocardiography experts. Watch out for the EACVI logo which indicates approved articles! We would be glad if WikiEcho becomes your most used and trusted online source in echocardiography.”
What We Found:
We found this to have some great information on Echocardiograms and Echocardiography Training in general. The hemodynamic section is especially good as are the pictures in the Echocardiogram Transducer positions section. Also since it is a WIKI you can add to the content! Think about adding content if you are an expert in the Echocardiography topic.
Their website address is http://www.wikiecho.org
Take a look and see what you think about it.
After you have reviewed the site be sure to comment on this post with your impressions. This new Echocardiogram site should get plenty of return visits.
As always if this info was interesting for you, like it and share it with your social networks.
