Echocardiography is a key investigation to understand heart disease. It is performed by a wide range of doctors including cardiologists, anaesthetists and intensivists, 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.
