This volume is a step-by-step educational echocardiography textbook from basic principles to advanced concepts. It is designed to rationalise and instruct readers on the rapid development in echocardiographic techniques, including real-time three-dimensional echocardiography, strain/strain rate imaging, and speckle tracking, which have greatly expanded the capabilities of cardiac imaging while overshadowing the importance of the basics of echocardiography.
Case-Based Textbook of Echocardiography offers a comprehensive review of echocardiography from basic skills to advanced techniques, including practical information from recently published ASE/EACVI guidelines and explanatory movies and figures. Providing balance between the science and clinical pearls, it is of great interest for all trainee cardiologists and echocardiographers and helpful to all clinicians in cardiology, internal medicine, cardiac surgery, interventio
nal cardiology and paediatric cardiology.
