Hearts All Around Us

A Photo Exhibit by the
American Society of Echocardiography Foundation
Give Us Your Best Shot!

As echocardiographers, you excel at taking images of the heart. Now we’d like to give you the opportunity to share the images you’ve taken from the heart.


The theme of this year’s photo exhibit is Hearts All Around Us and will showcase photographs of heart-shaped things you have come across in nature, architecture, everyday life, etc. Since you work with the heart, you probably find yourself seeing hearts all around. Perhaps it’s a heart-shaped cloud, or the arch of a building, or the bend of a tree branch you saw on hike. We invite you to share these images with us for our annual exhibit which will be on display during ASE 2022 in Seattle, WA, June 10-13, 2022.

The exhibit is open to all members of the American Society of Echocardiography and any volunteers from our global health outreach events.
