This book covers an extensive range of real-life patient journeys, using gold standard imaging techniques and in-depth discussion around treatment and patient outcomes. These case studies will allow readers to improve their general cardiorespiratory knowledge, learn the value of basic echocardiographic measurements, and see what cutting-edge treatments are possible for a range of disorders.
