Anatomic Basis of Echocardiographic Diagnosis
BeschreibungThe aim of this book is to provide a systematic approach to echocardiographic diagnosis based upon a comprehensive understanding of cardiac anatomy. We shall provide abundant anatomic correlates of echocardiographic findings throughout the book.The book will be divided into three sections. Each chapter will cover both normal and pathological findings on echocardiography with anatomic correlation. The first section will address the normal findings which can be appreciated by current day echocardiography. The impact of aging on cardiac structure and function will also be covered in this section. In the second section, specific cardiac diseases will be discussed. The differentiating features between normal and pathologic conditions will be discussed. The last section will address specific clinical settings where echocardiography is pivotal for diagnosis and patient management.
