A Practical Approach to Clinical Echocardiography

by Jagdish C Mohan

This book, A Practical Guide to Clinical Echocardiography, deals with clinical echocardiography. Echocardiography is the most commonly used imaging technique at bedside, in out-patient, in outpatients and in community screening. It is highly portable, noninvasive, repeatable, inexpensive and easily accessible. When used appropriately after some experience, it has inherent internal validation unlike many other imaging modalities. Clinicians using this technique transcend boundaries of specialties. More and more physicians want to learn and practice it. Despite these obvious advantages, this modality remains incompletely utilized. There are several learning modules in capsule form and a multitude of books which claim to make a person expert in short time. extensive research has shown applicability of a lot of echocardiographic knowledge and information in day-to-day evidence-based medicine. Quantitative and semi-quantitative protocols are gaining ground because these make serial follow-up easily. This book is an attempt to make echocardiography simple, practical and easily usable with reproducible data. Unnecessary and impractical details have been omitted.
