RESTREPO, Gustavo  and  RESTREPO, Patricia M. "Nurse specialist in cardiac ultrasound. Proposal for training in Colombia. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2014, vol.21, n.4, pp.226-230. ISSN 0120-5633.

The practice of cardiac sonography in our country shows a very similar behavior to the rest of the world, in which accelerated technological development is coupled with a scarcity of certified professionals in the diagnostic imaging field. These professionals must be included in our teams. We need health personnel with appropriate training for the proper implementation of this diagnostic methodology. We performed a comprehensive review of the subject worldwide and made an ideal academic proposal for this field in Colombia, describing among other things, their role, qualities and competencies, professional and occupational profile.
