Welcome to SeeMyHeart.org, a patient information site dedicated to helping patients and the public better understand heart and circulation ultrasound. Brought to you by the heart and circulation ultrasound experts at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), many of our pages have movies and animation to help you find out more about heart ultrasound.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women and a growing concern around the world. Our members use ultrasound to provide an exceptional view of the cardiovascular system, providing doctors with a wealth of information about the structure and function of a patient’s heart so proper treatment can then be started. This technology is an integral part of enhancing patient care.
ASE is committed to improving public and patient education, providing cutting-edge professional education, supporting research in the cardiovascular ultrasound field, and developing practice guidelines to help ensure the best possible patient care. ASE also facilitates access to trained echo professionals (FASE) and accredited echo labs (IAC-Echo) through this site.
