The International Stress Echo Study to to Define the Future of Imaging
Summary: With stress echo (SE) 2020 study, a new standard of practice in stress imaging was developed and disseminated: the ABCDE protocol for functional testing within and beyond CAD. ABCDE protocol was the fruit of SE 2020, and is the seed of SE 2030, which is articulated in 12 projects: 1-SE in coronary artery disease (SECAD); 2- SE in diastolic heart failure (SEDIA); 3-SE in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy...
