Abstract

Considering the rising costs of healthcare and the availability of multiple types of cardiovascular imaging, careful consideration must be given to selection of the most appropriate imaging modality. The value equation, which considers the benefits relative to the cost, is described for echocardiography. As described in the articles in this issue, echocardiography has become central to the assessment of patients with a broad variety of cardiac conditions.
