Finally, a basic echocardiography book that is clear enough for clinical use.Using basic terminology, the author explains how to record high-quality cross-section images, Doppler tracings, and measure the parameters in the clinical laboratory. Technical explanations are described "in-line" rather than referencing another area of the book. An accompanying CD provides cine loops with examples of normal and disease states. Focusing on basic echocardiograms (2-D, Doppler and occasional M-modes), the book also includes some of the newest modalities, such as 3-D echo and tissue Doppler. In an era of evidenced-based medicine, Practical Handbook of Echocardiography supplies important quantitative determinations rather than just qualitative data.
