Echocardiography is a key investigation to understand heart disease. It is performed by a wide range of doctors including cardiologists, anaesthetists and interventionists, as well as a large body of technicians. The book provides all the essential information on how to perform, analyse and report echocardiograms in an easily accessible handbook presentation. It is designed to complement training and accreditation programmes and, importantly, bridges the gap in echocardiography books between the simple entry-level texts and the large textbooks.
Based on international cardiology and echocardiography society guidelines, this book aims to demystify transthoracic, transoesophageal and stress imaging, while remaining authoritative.

While in Cambridge he completed an MB/PHD programme and, during early clinical training undertook post-doctoral research at University College London. He is now a British Heart Foundation Fellow at the University of Oxford with a clinical research programme that uses ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging to study the development of cardiovascular disease. He is co-author of three Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Cardiology covering echocardiography, pacing and angiography. Dr. Mitchell is Consultant Cardiologist in Jersey, Channel Islands and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Dr. Mitchell has special interests in non-invasive imaging, with particular expertise in transoesophageal and intracardiac echocardiography. His other interests include the role of device therapy for arrythmia management. Dr. Mitchell is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC). Dr. Harald Becher is a Consultant Cardiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital, specialising in echocardiograms. Dr. Becher is also a professor of Cardiac Ultrasound for the University of Oxford.
"...an invaluable tool in the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac disease. This new Oxford Handbook is for everyone, cardiologists and cardiac physiologists alike, involved in the direct care of cardiology patients...will not only provide an excellent aide-memoir for the experienced echocardiographer or physcian, but will prove invaluable for those preparing for BSE accreditation."--The British Journal of Cardiology
