Important features include:user-friendly accompanying DVD over 500 color and black-and-white illustrations and tables to assist the reader in correctly identifying various disease states detailed list of 50 landmark papers with commentary presentation of difficult case studies from everyday practice exploration of the practical aspects of imaging during stress and the science of reading of stress echo studies detailed explanations of the quantification of echocardiographic response and stress echo interpretation descriptions of the use of different stress echocardiographic modalities in specific clinical situations, as well as the advantages, drawbacks, pitfalls, and implications of results on patient management
This book contains the edited contributions from 38 scientists and engineers from all over the world who presented the most up-to-date findings on 2-dimensional echocardiography, different Doppler modalities, contrast and stress echocardiography and the different modalities of transesophageal echocardiography, including mono-, bi- and multiplane TEE, as well as pulsed and CW-Doppler application via TEE. Exciting and promising developments are discussed in the field of intravascular ultrasound, tissue characterization, ultrasound ablation, ultrasound-based 3-dimensional reconstruction of the heart, and high frequency Doppler analysis.
The rapid advances in CCT technology, the advent of new clinical applications, and the acquisition of data on prognostic value are just some of the reasons for the publication of this new edition of Clinical Applications of Cardiac CT, little more than 3 years after the first edition appeared. The text has been extensively revised and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice, and the structure and layout of the educational content have also been improved. The imaging targets, semeiology, technique, and clinical applications of CCT are all covered in detail, and in addition relevant information is provided on epidemiology, clinical assessment, and the role of other diagnostic modalities. This book will prove an invaluable tool for radiologists and cardiologists alike.
Essential Echocardiography: A Practical Handbook provides the physiological, anatomical, and diagnostic grounding for all students of cardiac ultrasound, as well as a sound basis for a more general understanding of cardiac imaging. This volume will be of great value to cardiologists in training and practice, internists, and cardiac sonographers.
