Echo

by Atul Luthra

Ultrasound has revolutionized clinical practice by providing the fifth dimension to physical examination after inspection, palpation, percussion and auscultation. Echocardiography is the application of ultrasound for examining the heart. The book titled Echo Made Easy provides an overview of the techniques, principles and clinical practice of echocardiography. It begins with the basic principles of ultrasound and Doppler and the clinical applications of various echo-modalities including 2-D echo, M-mode scan, Doppler echo and colour-flow mapping. This is followed by an account of different echo-windows and normal echo-views along with normal values and dimensions. The echo features of various forms of heart disease such as congenital, valvular, coronary, and hypertensive disorders are individually discussed. Due emphasis has been laid on pitfalls in diagnosis, differentiation between seemingly similar findings, their causation and their clinical relevance. This book is particularly meant for students of cardiology as well as keen established clinicians wanting to know more about echo.
