Back Cover Copy
In recent years, transesophageal echocardiography has become one of the most exciting imaging modalities available in modern clinical cardiology. Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography is the result of the evolution of echocardiography from single plane and biplane transducers over the past decade. Atlas of Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography provides cardiologists, anesthesiologists, and cardiac surgeons with a comprehensive analysis of cardiac imaging from the authors' experience of having performed over 15,000 transesophageal echocardiograms. Using a consistent format throughout, each chapter commences with normal cardiac structure and function followed by abnormalities. There are concise explanations for measuring and interpreting cardiac chamber sizes and function. Transesophageal echocardiographic images are juxtaposed with top quality correlative anatomic specimens, nearly 3000 images in total, to give a clear understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy.
Bowker Data Service Summary
Sutton and Maniet provide the student with an authoritative review of the techniques available and the images that can be obtained in this atlas of multiplane transesophageal echocardiography.
Main Description
Focusing on one of the most exciting imaging modalities available in modern clinical cardiology, Atlas of Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography provides a comprehensive analysis of this modality drawn from the authors' experience. Designed to cover the breadth and depth of the topic, the book covers the evaluation of prosthesis, interventional cardiology techniques, and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiology.Each chapter begins with normal cardiac structure and function followed by abnormalities and demonstrates how to measure and interpret cardiac chamber sizes and function. Transesophageal echocardiographic images are juxtaposed with top-quality anatomic specimens, nearly 3000 images in total, to give a clear understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy. The clinical emphasis provides an authoritative review of the available techniques and the images that can be obtained with them.

Main Description
Over the past few years transesophageal echocardiography has become one of the most exciting imaging modalities available today in modern clinical cardiology. Transesophageal echocardiography through its portability, relatively inexpensive equipment and semi-noninvasive nature is currently available and readily accessible to almost every cardiac patient in comparison to other radiographic techniques. Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography is the result of the technologic evolution of echocardiography from single plane and biplane transducers over the past decade. Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography provides high resolution cardiac images in an infinite number of planes which combined with conventional color Doppler modalities, offers a superlative diagnostic tool for evaluating cardiac structure and function. In addition to enhanced diagnostic capabilities, multiplane technology allows for greater patient safety with less discomfort because transducer manipulation is minimized. The advantages of multiplane transesophageal echocardiography are that it provides an array of multiplane images in real time, which offers a three-dimensional perspective of cardiac anatomy that cannot be appreciated even by the cardiac pathologist. The aim of this atlas is to provide medical students, anesthesiologists, cardiac surgeons and cardiologists with a concise but in-depth analysis of cardiac imaging from an experience of over 10,000 transesophageal echocardiograms performed by the authors. A concise explanation of measurements of cardiac chamber sizes and function and Doppler are provided only for transesophageal echocardiographic applications. Transesophageal echocardiographic images are juxtaposed with correlative anatomic specimens to provide a clear understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy.
