This comprehensive text is a compilation of more than 250 clinical cases and 800 video clips from echocardiographers and cardiologists all over the world.
Divided into eleven sections, cases cover all functions of the heart and associated disorders and infections. Most cases are presented in a uniform format, detailing patient history, clinical findings, echocardiographic images and video clips, one or more multiple choice questions with answers, followed by general discussion on the topic.
The majority of cases have an emphasis in echocardiography, with some drawing comparisons with other techniques, predominantly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomographic (CT) scans.
Edited by internationally recognised expert Navin C Nanda from University of Alabama, this book features nearly 600 images and a DVD ROM providing echocardiographic video clips.
