Overview

The Complete Guide to Echocardiography is a must-have tool for cardiologists and cardiology trainees preparing for their boards. Accompanied by a CD study tool, this text offers a case-based, problem-oriented and image driven program that will ensure mastery of the essential visual elements of echocardiography in combination with a sophisticated understanding of anatomy, hemodynamics, pathophysiology and disease recognition. Focused teaching principles are combined with specific still and video clip examples on a topic by topic basis, and include a series of questions modeled after those found on the Echo Board Certification Exam.

The Complete Guide to Echocardiography is an essential resource for trainees and practitioners.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David Homan, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book addresses the essentials of echocardiography, including anatomy, hemodynamics, and pathophysiology.
Purpose: It is intended to be an efficient and focused tool for review and preparation for the ASCeXAM.
Audience: The intended audience includes anyone preparing to take the examination.
Features: The book begins with the basics of echocardiography physics and progresses to explain normal transthoracic and transesophageal examinations. Doppler and tissue strain are covered with adequate detail before the book progresses into chapters arranged around various cardiac pathologies (aortic valve disease, congenital heart disease, etc.). Particularly helpful are the images on the accompanying CD-ROM and linked directly to the text. Each chapter begins with review questions and finishes with multiple board-style questions and a discussion of the correct answers.
Assessment: This is an excellent review for anyone preparing for the ASCeXAM. It provides concise and helpful review chapters as well as practice board questions on all of the anatomic, hemodynamic, and pathologic aspects pertinent to echocardiography.
