JB-POT, Inc.

The Japanese Board of Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography (JB-POT) was organized in September 2004 by the Japanese Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (JSCVA) in association with the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE).

The JB-POT will develop and administer examination and hold seminars in the field of perioperative TEE.

The first examination of perioperative transesophageal echocardiography was given under the JSCVA on September 12, 2004, the final day of the 9th International Congress of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia. Since 2005, examination of perioperative echocardiography has been given under the JB-POT.

JB-POT Certifying Examination

The JB-POT has prepared the content outline for certifying examination to test the required knowledge of usual perioperative TEE application. This outline consists of broad information involving anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and acoustic technology. The final goal is to cultivate specialized cardiovascular diagnosticians especially in the field of perioperative TEE.

The examination is to be given annually in cooperation with the NBE.

The JB-POT will authorize competent candidates, and expect those certified specialists to enhance the quality of perioperative TEE by making the effort to optimize their skill in the performance and interpretation of cardiac ultrasound, and furthermore to take a core position in the operation of TEE.
