About this book


Echocardiography remains the most commonly used cardiac imaging modality in clinical care and is now considered an extension of the stethoscope with other physicians, such as interventional cardiologists and internists, often viewing and interpreting echocardiograms. Technology advances in echocardiography such as tissue Doppler/strain and 3D echocardiography have further extended its clinical scope, while cardiac imaging is rapidly extending beyond the heart with laboratories now incorporating various vascular imaging protocols as part of their clinical activity. Lastly, the emerging focus on continuing education and certification in echocardiography puts pressure on physicians to keep abreast of basic and new techniques in echocardiography Case-Based Echocardiography: Fundamentals And Clinical Practice has been developed to offer a succinct guide to the discipline, incorporating topics ranging from fundamental physical principles to important cardiac pathologies and novel technologies. It has been designed to provide this knowledge in a novel, condensed format, enabling easy and quick reference to topics and also enables its use in a bedside situation to enhance performance and interpretation of echocardiographic data. The content will also assist readers in preparing for competency tests in echocardiography such as the echocardiography boards. To give the reader the benefit of most meaningful and up-to-date content, Dr Abraham has assembled a group of renowned experts in echocardiography with substantial experience in various specific echocardiography technologies. The result is a compact yet highly informative clinical handbook that provides as much if not more knowledge than most textbooks with a significantly less investment of time.
