The Echo Manual / Edition 2

Backed by your most respected colleagues at the Mayo Clinic! The Second Edition of this very popular technical manual guides you through the techniques, diagnostic criteria, and quantitative methods of both echocardiography and Doppler echocardiography. You'll appreciate the straightforward approaches to special clinical problems, hints on optimal techniques, and easy-to-follow diagnostic criteria for interpreting images. Plus, more than 500 illustrations — well annotated and true to gray scale and color — give you an immediate grasp of salient points. "The strength of The Echo Manual is the breadth of its synopsis in a readable and enjoyable form." (Anesthesiology, review of the last edition)
