This book is a step-by-step manual for the complete echo-novice. It should be the only book needed to become a proficient echocardiographer. The text focuses on the practicalities of performing an examination, and the interpretation of images. Avoiding unnecessary technicalities, it places particular emphasis on the diagnostic features of sample cases and covers the entire breadth of adult cardiology. The majority of the echo images are also available in a dynamic form on the Expert Consult platform. Also included is access to 100 case scenarios and images for self-assessment interpretation. The combination of the book and the website materials provides an unparalleled learning experience for people who do not routinely practise echocardiography.
"This is an excellent primer for those starting out in echocardiography and even those who have been doing it for a while. It's clearly written by someone who is near enough to the front end of their training that they remember what others find or may find difficult to understand. The text is extremely readable with useful illustrations and good quality images."
