This best-selling and highly-praised book provides a practical and clinically useful introduction to echo - much of which is easy - for those who will be using, requesting and possibly interpreting it in the future. The book is aimed particularly at doctors in training and medical students. It has been proved of great use to other groups, including qualified physicians, general practitioners, cardiac technicians, nurses and paramedics. In the book the author explains the echo techniques available, what an echo can and cannot give, and - importantly - puts echo into a clinical perspective. It is by no means intended as a complete textbook of echo and some aspects are far beyond its scope (e.g., complex congenital heart disease and paediatric echo). The sections are ordered with the techniques most often used to diagnose a particular clinical problem explained first. The final chapter deals with special clinical situations. "Unquestionably achieves the author's aim . and does so with consummate ease.
