Scope

Echo Research and Practice aims to be the premier international journal for physicians, sonographers, nurses and other allied health professionals practising echocardiography and other cardiac imaging modalities. This open-access journal publishes quality clinical and basic research, reviews, videos, education materials and selected high-interest case reports and videos across all echocardiography modalities and disciplines, including paediatrics, anaesthetics, general practice, acute medicine and intensive care. Multi-modality studies primarily featuring the use of cardiac ultrasound in clinical practice, in association with Cardiac Computed Tomography, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance or Nuclear Cardiology are of interest.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • 2D echocardiography
  • 3D echocardiography
  • Comparative imaging techniques – CCT, CMR and Nuclear Cardiology
  • Congenital heart disease, including foetal echocardiography
  • Contrast echocardiography
  • Critical care echocardiography
  • Deformation imaging
  • Doppler echocardiography
  • Interventional echocardiography
  • Intracardiac echocardiography
  • Intraoperative echocardiography
  • Prosthetic valves
  • Stress echocardiography
  • Technical innovations
  • Transoesophageal echocardiography
  • Valve disease

Echo Research and Practice is the official journal of the British Society of Echocardiography and is also endorsed by collaborating societies worldwide: working together to further research, education and practice in echocardiography.
