The thoroughly revised Seventh Edition of Feigenbaum's Echocardiography reflects recent changes in the technology and clinical use of echocardiography. It remains the definitive reference for clinically relevant information on echocardiography

Highlights include:

* Over 1,600 illustrations, 600 in full color
* Detailed discussions on the use of 3D echocardiography and perfusion imaging
* New information on the mechanics and utility of Strain and Strain rate imaging
* Many new images complement the state-of-the-art information on technological advances
* Current AHA/ACC guidelines are included for each chapter
* An accompanying DVD contains 4 fully narrated lectures and over 1300+ echo clips
