DESCRIPTION

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.
