Elsevier Announces the Launch of Case: Cardiovascular Imaging Case Reports

New York, February 27, 2017

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, and the American Society of Echocardiography, a professional, nonprofit organization of scientists and healthcare workers involved in cardiovascular ultrasound, today announced the launch of CASE: Cardiovascular Imaging Case Reports.

CASE is an online, bi-monthly journal with the mission of publishing interesting and educational cases where echocardiography plays a crucial role in diagnosis and management.

Although the journal is focused on echocardiography, it also reflects current practice with multiple complementary imaging modalities, facilitating more accurate diagnosis and thereby improving patient care. The journal emphasizes case-based problem solving through critical analysis, insightful solutions, and innovative imaging. It incorporates the latest technology for image exploration, including the ability to zoom and pan high-resolution images and scroll through DICOM images and manipulate them in three dimensions.

CASE is led by Editors-in-Chief L. Leonardo Rodriguez, MD, FASE, FACC, and Karen G. Zimmerman, BS, ACS, RDCS, RVT, FASE, and an editorial board of echo experts from a wide variety of countries. The journal will reflect cardiovascular practices throughout the world, and the editors mirror this global perspective.

“We are proud to start an exciting new journal dedicated to cases where echocardiography and other cardiovascular imaging have a premier role in diagnosing and helping to manage complex clinical situations,” Dr. Rodrigez commented. “Visual learners know that every picture tells a story. Echocardiography, like all imaging, is the universal communication tool. We will share real-life imaging experiences to assist in better patient care.”
