Bring state-of-the-art imaging to your expert evaluation of cardiovascular function. Leading Mayo Clinic physicians share their most successful approaches and offer expert insights to help you avoid diagnostic pitfalls. More than 500 images highlight the echocardiographic appearance of ischemic, myocardial, pericardial, and valvular disease.

Expertly use contrast agents to enhance the Doppler signals of mitral regurgitation, pulmonary vein flow, and tricuspid regurgitation. Gain current insights on the uses and limitations of two-and three-dimensional echocardiography, strain-rate imaging, tissue Doppler, and vascular imaging.

Be up to date on current diagnostic criteria for infective endocarditis, diseases of the aorta, valvular heart disease, pulmonary vein stenosis, and more. Thoroughly updated for its Third Edition, this best-selling manual is a practical guide to the performance, interpretation, and clinical applications of echocardiography. The Echo Manual is written by recognized authorities at the Mayo Clinic and provides a concise, user-friendly summary of techniques, diagnostic criteria, and quantitative methods for both echocardiography and Doppler echocardiography. Discussion of each clinical problem also includes transesophageal echocardiography.

This edition covers the latest techniques, standards, and applications and includes new contrast agents. All references have been updated. More than 900 images - well annotated and true to gray scale and color - give readers an immediate grasp of salient points.
