The second edition of the Atlas of Echocardiography is a complete reference for cardiology professionals who rely on echocardiographic imaging techniques. The Atlas represents the collective effort of over 30 leading authorities in the field of cardiology working together to compile the most up-to-date and pertinent information in the field of echocardiography. All areas of echocardiography are covered, from diagnostic basics to cutting edge techniques, such as three-dimensional imaging, contrast imaging, and tissue Doppler imaging. Each figure is accompanied by an informative legend that fully explains the image and its importance. This striking, four color atlas serves as both a resource and a reference and is an invaluable tool to all readers, including cardiologists, non-cardiologist physicians, and sonographers.
Written for: Physicians, cardiologists, sonographers
