Ultrasound has revolutionised clinical practice by providing the fifth dimension to physical examination after inspection, palpation, percussion and auscultation. Echocardiography is the application of ultrasound for examining the heart. It is a practical, widely available, cost effective and non-invasive means of diagnosis. This 2nd edition of "Echo Made Easy" has been greatly improved - the text has been changed into bullet-point format to improve readability and recall. The illustrations and figures have been redrawn and colour-flow maps are now depicted in their true colours as they appear on the screen during echocardiography. In addition, an entire new chapter on Colour-Doppler Echo has been incorporated and is supported by coloured illustrations. The book begins with the basic principles of ultrasound and Doppler and the clinical applications of various echo-modalities. This is followed by an account of different echo-windows and normal echo-views with due emphasis being laid on pitfalls in diagnosis, differentiation between seemingly similar findings, their causation and their clinical relevance. This book is particularly intended for students of cardiology as well as keen clinicians wanting to know more about echocardiography.
