Abstract

Future cardiology practice will be increasingly individualized, and thus to maintain its central role, echocardiography must keep pushing to expand the boundaries of real-time data acquisition from tissue and fluid motion, and yet still provide efficient and timely data analysis that leads to succinct, clear clinical recommendations tailored to each person in our care. In this article, recent efforts to expand echocardiography techniques into an era of increasingly personalized cardiology, including advances in color-coded tissue Doppler, 3D echocardiography and complex exercise stress echocardiography are described. The common metric for success in each of these efforts is the development of robust and institutionally supportable echocardiography protocols for specific cardiology disease populations that currently may be underdiagnosed and/or undertreated. The common result in each case should be the creation of new guidelines that can supplement the current standard protocols advocated by professional echocardiography organizations.
