Each chapter provides an advanced level of instruction, written by an expert in the field, building upon the basic material in Otto's companion volume, TEXTBOOK OF CLINICAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, 2ND EDITION. It provides up-to-date, relevant information on not only the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of echocardiographic images and Doppler flow data, but also on how this information might affect clinical decision making.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
New edition of a text that provides an integrated assessment of echocardiographic and other clinical data in each patient, with an emphasis on the clinical roles of specialized health care professionals. Each of the 44 chapters contains an advanced level of instruction written by an expert in the field, building upon the basic material in the companion volume and providing information on the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of echocardiographic images and Doppler flow data and how this might affect clinical decision making.They also include recent advances in the field, new techniques such as contrast and 3-D, and sections on the echocardiography laboratory, pericardial disease, transesophageal echocardiography, and other topics. Illustrated with tables, line drawings, echodardiographic images, and Doppler tracings. Edited by Otto (cardiology, U. of Washington). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
