Welcome to the Adult Echocardiography Core Laboratory
The Adult Echocardiography Core provides high-quality cardiovascular imaging along with quantitative and qualitative imaging analysis for cardiovascular clinical trials and investigator initiated protocols. The Core faculty and staff offers expertise, materials, consultation, performs scanning and analysis on a fee for service basis. The Core serves Investigators affiliated with the Medical College of Wisconsin. We provide consultation on image acquisition and analysis based upon American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) recommendations for the performance and evaluation of a comprehensive transthoracic echocardiogram, use of echocardiography in clinical trials and employ the ASE Standards for Echocardiography Core Laboratories. Successful and timely scanning and data analysis requires a concerted, collaborative effort of the Investigator and the Core staff in all stages of the study. Investigators planning on utilizing Core services are therefore encouraged to contact the staff early in the planning stages of the study. Ordering information and detailed description of services are available through this website.
