Textbook of Echocardiography

by V Amuthan, Satish K Parashar

This book focuses on Echocardiography. Echocardiography has emerged as one of the leading noninvasive diagnostic techniques in cardiology. Echocardiography, during 1980s and early 1990s, was in a developing phase in India, and only few people were actively involved in this field, though many were showing interest in this specialty. This state-of-the-art book has 49 chapters and Appendices, which cover all common aspects of echocardiography starting from basics to the current advanced techniques. All efforts have been made to maintain the quality and standard of the book. This will be a nice reference book for postgraduates, cardiologists, physicians, anesthetists, pediatricians, etc. The book emphasizes on how to perform basic 2D and 3D echocardiography, and there are chapters fully dedicated on “How to perform two and three-dimensional echocardiography by the uninitiated.” Both transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiographic techniques are described. There are separate chapters on chamber quantification, assessment of systolic, diastolic function, congenital and valvular heart disease. There are dedicated chapters on coronary artery disease, stress echocardiography and myocardial contrast echocardiography, emphasizing the need for strain analysis, regional wall motion abnormalities and ejection fraction. The book further explores the value of echocardiography for electrophysiology: Echo in patients with pacemakers and cardiac resynchronization therapy.
