Fully updated for its third edition, Echocardiography provides all of the essential information you need on echo acquisition, interpretation, and reporting in an easily-readable and concise format. Featuring over 400 full colour images, this resource also comes with online access to 155 video clips to clarify complex issues, making it an invaluable guide for both the experienced and trainee cardiologist who performs echocardiography as part of their practice. Designed to align to international guidelines and help trainees undergoing accreditation or certification, including the BSE, EACVI, and ASE requirements, this handbook bridges the gap between entry-level texts and large textbooks, and is compact enough to carry around in clinical settings. It covers all echocardiography modalities, from acute echocardiography to transoesophageal and stress imaging. The third edition includes a simplified approach to the physics of ultrasound, a brand new chapter on interventional echocardiography, and a streamlined navigation between basic and advanced techniques. The sections on diastolic function, heart failure, and congenital heart disease have been expanded, and over 100 new illustrations, images, and schematic diagrams have been added to simplify images and anatomy for the reader.
