Written and endorsed by world experts from the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), this unique multimedia resource uses text, case studies, and online components to cover the latest uses of echocardiography, including the most recent 2D and 3D advances. Unlike other existing textbooks in echocardiography, including the predecessor of this volume, entitled Dynamic Echocardiography, this 2nd edition, with its new title, covers a full range of topics, reflected in its 200 chapters that include essential material in a succinct format. Dr. Roberto M. Lang and his expert colleagues provide everything you need to assess cardiac anatomy and function and obtain clinically useful, noninvasive information for more accurate diagnosis and evaluation of heart disease.
"I am also very proud that this textbook illustrates what is great about the ASE. We are a society with more than 16,000 members worldwide, dedicated to quality in cardiovascular ultrasound and education, both of which are prominently demonstrated throughout this textbook. ASE is also a village made up of many different people from many different backgrounds, all united and energized about the value of cardiovascular ultrasound in caring for people worldwide." Foreword by: Neil J. Weissman, American Society of Echocardiography, July 2015
