Patient Engagement

Heart disease, including congenital heart disease and stroke, is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, accounting for 1 in every 4 deaths. Funding in this area will advance the ASE Foundation’s direct outreach efforts to patients, increasing awareness of cardiovascular ultrasound and the crucial role it plays in optimal patient care. These educational efforts strive to empower patients to talk to their medical professionals about the use of cardiovascular ultrasound in their diagnostic plans and ongoing treatment.

The See My Heart website offers a wealth of information on cardiovascular ultrasound, including FAQs and information on types of ultrasounds and why your doctor might order one. Click the link to visit the site.
