"This volume is constructed to be maximally useful to both novices and experienced personnel, echocardiographers, and sonographers. Emerging from one of the leading academic centers in the United Kingdom, it is a major achievement, both as a technical manual and an authoritative source. Clinical practice will be reinforced by this volume, while neophytes will find it an invaluable reference. A major diagnostic technology in cardiovascular disease deserves and is well served by this important contribution. Use it and enjoy it." - Dr Richard E. Kerber, Past President, American Society of Echocardiography
"Concise and little in volume, but has enormous amount of data packed into it leaving very little to imagination. Authors show remarkable hands-on experience, point by point explanation, readable, easily understood and very affordable...has everything practical you possibly want to know about adult echocardiography in one place!" - Dr. Manan Vasenwala, Uttar Pradesh, India
"...an invaluable tool in the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac disease...highly readable." - British Journal of Hospital Medicine
"The highlight of the book is that it gives guidance to the sonographer on reporting abnormalities and what further information is needed to assess for specific adnormalities...For a 'pocket' book, the subject is surprisingly covered in great detail." - Cardiology News
