The Feasibility, Diagnostic Yield, and Learning Curve of Portable Echocardiography for Out-of-Hospital Cardiovascular Disease Screening
Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography, 02/22/2012
Weiner RB et al. – Community–based transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in athletes is feasible and is associated with a high rate of technically adequate imaging. Importantly, there appears to be a significant learning curve associated with out–of–hospital TTE.
