Protocols and Guidelines

The BSE Education Committee publishes numerous protocols and guidelines each year.

BSE protocols are an excellent resource to help you establish step by step procedures for performing an echo.  As well as minimum datasets for newly presenting patients, the protocols outline the views and measurements you need for comprehensive studies in a variety of pathologies and are presented in an easy to use format that includes text, stills and video clips.



New protocols are released throughout the year.  There are currently over 10 protocols including:

  • Transthoracic Minimum Dataset
  • Transoesophageal Minimum Dataset
  • Mitral Valve Repair
  • Hyperthrophic Cardiomyopathy
  • Probe Decontamination


Echo Library and Clinical Cases

The Clinical Cases area consists of studies of interesting or unusual cases submitted by members of the Society.

The Echo Library is filled with educational clips and stills with explanatory text, which are categorised and fully searchable.
