The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) requires a

reading center to measure and interpret echocardiographic images

performed on participants in the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS), an

epidemiological research study of the risk factors for the development

and progression of coronary heart disease and stroke in the elderly in

four U.S. communities.  The Echocardiography Reading Center will assist

in protocol development for the performance of echocardiographic

examinations of study participants, train CHS Field Center staff at

four sites, perform measurements and interpretations of 120 studies per

week (5407 initial studies and 541 blind duplicates) in a standardized

and reproducible manner, and participate in analysis and publication of

data in collaboration with other study investigators and NHLBI staff.

The period of performance is anticipated to be July 1, 1993 through May

30, 2000.

This is an announcement for a Request for Proposals (RFP).  RFP

NHLBI-HC-92-34 will be issued on or about July 24, 1992, and proposals

will be due October 8, 1992.  One award is anticipated to be made

during July 1993.  All responsible sources may submit a proposal that

will be considered by the NHLBI.  Send a written request with three

self-addressed mailing labels and cite RFP NHLBI-HC-92-34.  Telephone

requests will not be accepted.
