Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Diseases

by IB Vijayalakshmi

Today ECHO facility is available in many peripheral centres. Further, ECHO is reported by technicians and clinicians who are otherwise good but have less exposure to ECHO in CHD. The eyes do not see what the mind does not know is very true about the ECHO in CHDs. As a result, simple ASD can be missed. Since complete cure is possible in nearly 65 per cent of CHDs with surgery or with transcatheter interventions, early detection and referral is very important. In this direction this book will assist, guide and help detect and diagnose CHDs. The usual apex up imaging simulates the anatomy of a patient who is standing on their head and facing away from the examiner. Therefore apex down imaging not only displays echocardiographic data in a more anatomical format, but also allows us to communicate more effectively. This book is designed for students, general physicians, sonographers, technicians and cardiologists as a handbook for a quick reference and recognition of both common and rare congenital heart diseases that one may encounter during one’s daily practice.
