Ok, got it
The EACVI aims at setting up an European standard in laboratory practices and patient care.
Since 2009, the EACVI has been offering Laboratory Accreditation in TTE, TOE and SE.
New in 2019: laboratory Accreditation in CMR.
The aim of the EACVI Laboratory Accreditation process is to raise quality standards of practice and equipment across Europe in a uniform manner. It is also designed to be used as an educational tool to improve the overall quality of the laboratories.
The EACVI Laboratory Accreditation process is also aimed at providing laboratories with standards against which they can benchmark themselves and may be used to reinforce a case for the purchase or upgrade of equipment and facilities to meet these standards.
What this process does not provide is a legal framework for practice but represents a voluntary process of standards that must function within national and local regulations. It is designed to apply to all ESC Member Countries whatever their model of provision of echocardiography.
