The book is mostly designed for students of echocardiography, teachers of echocardiography and cardiac sonographers working in routine clinical practice, but will also be very useful to echocardiologists and cardiac registrars. The goal of the text is to provide a comprehensive review of transthoracic echocardiography in the assessment of various cardiac pathologies. Refresher notes on cardiac anatomy and the relevant cardiac physiology and pathophysiology are included to expand the cardiac sonographer's knowledge in this area and further their understanding of various diseases, disease processes and associated findings. This comprehensive text is supported by over 720 figures including over 1,200 echo images, over 130 pathological photos and many illustrations. It also includes several appendices, numerous tables and technical tips which highlight key concepts. Hard-cover bound with 507 printed pages, this text is ready to be adopted as any sonographer's constant companion while dealing with the many challenges that arise in performing an echocardiographic examination.
