  • Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is well known for both its breadth of clinical presentations and its complications. Rapid echocardiographic assessment in ACS has assumed a distinguished role in detecting early and late mechanical complications, assessing function, and guiding emergent clinical decision-making. Because of its noninvasive nature, broad accessibility, and rapid acquisition, echocardiography holds particular promise for implementation in a standardized algorithm for initial evaluation.
