The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) Accreditation provides the foremost laboratory accreditation program for professional excellence in Europe. Along with formal acknowledgement from a scientific society, educational tools to improve overall quality and standards against which labs can benchmark themselves, the overall aim is to raise quality standards of practice across Europe in a uniform manner. The certification process is rigorous and to be eligible, echocardiography laboratories must have been established for at least 3 years and must have senior staff who hold individual certification with EACVI. The Cardiovascular Imaging Lab at KFSH&RC achieved accreditation in 2013. It is a five year accreditation and will be for renewal in 2018.
