"The book focuses on the time tested way of "the Socratic method" to teach the key concepts to busy clinical cardiologists, fellows, anesthesiologists and sonographers using a multiple choice question & answer format. The book will emphasize diagnostic interpretation rather than clinical management. This book is comprehensive with chapters ranging from fundamentals to new technologies. The format of each chapter is standardized with 3 types of questions. At the beginning, there are simple Type I questions followed by an answer. Then, Type II questions involving a question associated with a still frame graphic (M-Mode, 2-D or a 3-D) come next and are followed by an answer. Finally, Type III questions are presented involving case studies associated with several questions based on movies and still frames"--

With its easy accessibility, low cost, and ability to deliver, essential bedside information about the cardiac structure and function, echocardiography has become one of the most relied-upon diagnostic tools in clinical medicine. As a result, more clinicians than ever before must be able to accurately interpret echocardiographic information in order to administer appropriate treatment. Based on the authors’ experience teaching echocardiography in busy clinical settings, this new pocketbook provides reliable guidance on everyday clinical cardiac ultrasound and the interpretation of echocardiographic images. It has been designed to help readers develop a stepwise approach to the interpretation of a standard transthoracic echocardiographic study and teach how to methodically gather and assemble the most important information from each of the standard echocardiographic views in order to generate a complete final report of the study performed. What’s included: • A summary of TTE examination protocol and a comprehensive listing of useful formulas and normal values • Atrial and ventricular dimensions, LV and RV systolic function, LV diastolic patterns • Echocardiographic findings in the most commonly encountered cardiac diseases and disorders, including various cardiomyopathies, cardiac tamponade, constrictive pericarditis, valvular heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, infective endocarditis, and congenital heart disease • Companion website with video clips and over 70 self-assessment questions Packed with essential information and designed for quick look-up, this pocketbook will be of great assistance for anyone who works in busy clinical settings and who needs a ready and reliable guide to interpreting echocardiographic information to help deliver optimal patient care.

This book will serve as a comprehensive reference source and self-assessment guide for physicians and technologists who practice myocardial perfusion SPECT imaging. Readers will learn to identify a wide variety of findings apart from the left ventricle, including those in the chest, the abdomen, and the right heart. It is explained which findings are clinically relevant and related to the reason for the myocardial perfusion imaging examination and which are incidental, with or without important clinical ramifications. The coverage includes a wide variety of common and uncommon focal lesions (e.g., benign or malignant neoplasms) and organ/systemic diseases (e.g., emphysema, cirrhosis and its sequelae, cholecystitis, duodenogastric reflux/gastroparesis, end-stage renal disease) that may be detected with myocardial perfusion SPECT imaging. In addition, guidance is provided in the recognition of typical artifacts, which may appear either “hot” or “cold” on the raw (unprocessed) and processed SPECT images, and, thereby, in the avoidance of potential interpretative pitfalls.
