ASE-SCA Standard Nomenclature
 
The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesia (SCA) have published guidelines on the standard nomenclature for echocardiographic views . The nomenclature utilizes the acoustic windows, the structure visualized and the the cardiac axis or plane. For example, a echocardiographic image of the 4 chambers of the heart from the apical acoustic window will be called a Apical 4 Chamber View image.
