Easy-to-use handheld echocardiographic equipment is a practical and portable assessment tool for internists, family practitioners, hospitalists, emergency room physicians, intensivists, cardiologists, medical students, residents, fellows and other healthcare providers to assist with patient diagnosis at the point of care.

Real-life images from actual outpatient consultations and in-patient evaluations clearly explain and provide guidance on using handheld echo to arrive at a definitive diagnosis and/or to exclude other possible diagnoses.
