An echocardiogram is a test that uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart. The picture is much more detailed than a plain x-ray image and involves no radiation exposure (MedlinePlus).

This book is a practical guide to the latest advances and techniques in echocardiography. Beginning with an introduction to the fundamentals of the procedure, the following sections discuss both basic and advanced techniques for different cardiac conditions.

Highly illustrated with echo images and diagrams of heart structures, this invaluable reference helps trainees recognise and interpret echocardiographic images and Doppler flow data to make an accurate clinical diagnosis.
