Digital storage and structured reporting of an echocardiographic examination lead not only to increased quality of the image acquisition process, an understandable and clinically relevant exam report, but even more importantly to improved patient care. This chapter first describes the many advantages of a digital echocardiographic laboratory and then in a second part how to report the results of a complete echocardiogram, including mandatory items, recommended items, findings and measurements, comments, and conclusions, emphasizing the main findings of the diagnosis and the severity of the heart disease.
