Who We Are

The SOCIETY OF PEDIATRIC ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY (SOPE) is a forum for education, collaboration, advocacy, and networking for the pediatric and congenital echocardiography community.

SOPE is an independent organization whose mission is to maintain and promote excellence in the echocardiographic examination of every fetus, infant, child, and adolescent as well as the adult with congenital heart disease. In addition, SOPE is committed to optimizing the training of pediatric echocardiographers and sonographers, having participated in the development of guidelines and standards for the nomenclature of cardiac septal structures as well as physician training in pediatric, fetal, and transesophageal echocardiography.
