Description: Echo Test and Teach is a software application for improving consistency and accuracy in the measurement and interpretation of cardiac ultrasound images. This technology also provides resources to educate users on interesting cases and new techniques. This technology includes a wide range of case study types and complexities. The cases cover transthoracic echocardiography (two-dimensional, Doppler, M-Mode), pediatric echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography. The subject matters include measurement cases, interpretation cases, and anatomy cases.

There are three editions of this technology: Individual, Standard and Professional. The Individual Edition offers access to user mode and is intended for single license for individuals. The Standard Edition offers access to user mode and administrator mode and is intended for labs, practices, and teaching programs. The Professional Edition offers access to user mode, administrator mode, and case creator mode and is, also, intended for labs, practices, and teaching programs. This entry covers all editions of the technology.

This technology does not utilize a database as files generated by this technology are saved to the user`s local drive.

This technology has two options for deployment; a local hosted solution and a web-based solution. As it is not the general deployment, the local hosted option must be reviewed and approved by the vendor in advance.

The TRM decisions in this entry only apply to technologies and versions owned, operated, managed, patched, and version-controlled by VA. This includes technologies deployed as software installations on VMs within VA-controlled cloud environments (e.g. VA Enterprise Cloud (VAEC)). Cloud services provided by the VAEC, which are listed in the VAEC Service Catalog, and those controlled and managed by an external Cloud Service Provider (i.e. SaaS) are not in the purview of the TRM. For more information on the use of cloud services and cloud-based products within VA, including VA private clouds, please see the Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office (ECSO) Portal at:
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary. For additional information or assistance regarding Section 508, please contact the Section 508 Office at
