Relationship between JSE & EACVI – how do you see it developing?

Dr. Satoshi Nakatani, Vice President Japanese Society of Echocardio-graphy (JSE)



“The relationship between the Japanese Society of Echocardiography (JSE) and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) is important as we believe JSE is one of main echocardiography societies in the world and therefore enjoys active exchanges with international echocardiographic societies, especially with EACVI, ASE, the Korean Society of Echocardiography (KSE) and recently the Asian-Pacific Association of Echocardiography (AAE). We hope we continue to be a friendship society of EACVI. That means we are good partners to promote clinical and research echocardiography together for patients. Now, globalization is a trend and echocardiography is not an exception. Partnership is so important. For example, with this limited source of funding, we will be expected to produce more meaningful research results that are helpful for patients in a more efficient way. For that purpose, exchange of information and collaboration are essential. In the near future, we want to have collaborative research, to set echocardiography guidelines as the world standard and to exchange of academic information more intimately. Through the EACVI-JSE Joint Sessions held at JSE annual Scientific Meeting and EuroEcho annual Scientific Meeting, we are quite successful to have fruitful scientific and cultural exchange. JSE’s members are much inspired and stimulated by participating in international scientific sessions and experiencing the world-level echocardiography. We would like to continue and even strengthen much more the relationship between the Japanese Society of Echocardiography and EACVI. We believe it is mandatory to raise the level of echocardiography in terms of clinical practice and research leading to better patient care.”
