Brief introduction of the Korean Society of Echocardiography

The Korean Society of Echocardiography (KSE) is an academic society with a 22-year-old history.

Since the first introduction of echocardiographic equipment in 1968 to the Republic of Korea, creation of the KSE had been increasingly recognized. After a successful host of 4th APCDE (Asian-Pacific Conference on Doppler and Echocardiography) in Korea in 1991, the enthusiasm to establish the KSE was further grown and the foundation of KSE was finally achieved and announced in 15th, February, 1993. Since 1993, the KSE has provided opportunities to cardiologists as well as internists and physicians to improve knowledge in the field of cardiovascular images and more importantly patient care. The KSE was officially entered into the Korean Medical Association as an associate member in 1996 and now an effort to become a regular member is being increasingly made.

Elected as the first president, vice president, and secretary were Prof. Sam-Su Kim, Prof. Ok-Kyu Park, and Prof. Jong-Hwa Bae, respectively. The first chief director, Prof. NamSik Chung, was elected in 2001.
At present, the structure of the KSE consists of the executives (president, vice president, chairman, managing Editor, and auditors), the board of directors and thirteen committees, and 2258 members.
