Long Description
Practical Echocardiography and Doppler Mark J. Monaghan, Department of Cardiology, King's College Hospital, Denmark Hill, London Echocardiography and Doppler-the noninvasive examination of the activity of cardiac structures and intracardiac blood flow using reflected ultrasound-is now established as a primary, diagnostic tool for the evaluation of most forms of heart disease. In order to obtain technically accurate readings, and to interpret features associated with pathological conditions, considerable specialist skills are required of the technician or clinician operating the equipment, and of those responsible for interpreting the reading. Practical Echocardiography and Doppler offers a complete guide to understanding and performing ultrasound investigations of the heart using today's newest diagnostic techniques and methods, including Doppler color flow mapping. The book takes the reader through basic echo/Doppler instrumentation and physics, equipment controls, examination techniques, the best methods for obtaining relevant recordings and through the fundamental and essential aspects of interpreting echo and Doppler images throughout the whole spectrum of cardiac pathologies. The book's highly illustrated, readable text makes this an invaluable practical introduction for those new to the field and a useful 'quick reference' source for those more experienced. It will be warmly welcomed as essential reading by radiographers, radiologists, technicians, sonographers and cardiologists alike.
