The aim of this book is to focus on the echo made easy. Echocardiography is the application of ultrasound for examining the heart. It is a practically useful, widely available, cost-effective and noninvasive diagnostic tool. Usage of echo is rapidly expanding with more and more clinicians requesting for and interpreting it to solve vexing clinical dilemmas. The book 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 color-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 clinical relevance. In keeping with the spirit of simplicity, difficult topics, such as complex congenital cardiac disease, prosthetic heart valves and transesophageal echocardiography, have been purposely excluded. This book is particularly meant for students of cardiology as well as keen established clinicians wanting to know more about echo.
