Contents Notes
History of echocardiography / Harvey Feigenbaum -- Physics and instrumentation -- Specialized echocardiographic techniques and methods -- Contrast echocardiography -- The echocardiographic examination -- Evaluation of systolic and diastolic function of the left ventricle -- Left atrium, right atrium, and right ventricle -- Hemodynamics -- Pericardial diseases -- Aortic valve disease -- Mitral valve disease -- Tricuspid and pulmonary valves -- Infective endocarditis -- Prosthetic valves -- Coronary artery disease -- Stress echocardiography -- Cardiomyopathies -- Congenital heart diseases -- ICU and operative/perioperative applications -- Diseases of the aorta -- Masses, tumors, and source of embolus -- Echocardiography in systemic disease and clinical problem solving. Although thoroughly revised, this text retains its original intent to provide clinically relevant and proven applications of echocardiography. Organized by clinical applications, the book includes practical guidelines on the most appropriate echocardiographic studies for a given clinical problem. More than 1,200 illustrations, including over 200 in full color, complement the text. There is new information on tumors in the chapter on cardiac masses, and the cardiac chambers chapter has been divided into two chapters: evaluation of left ventricular systolic and diastolic function and evaluation of the right ventricle and the right and left atria.
