This best-selling and highly-praised book provides a practical and clinically useful introduction to echo. The author explains the echo techniques available, what an echo can and cannot give, and, importantly, puts echo into a clinical perspective. The sections are ordered with the techniques most often used to diagnose a particular clinical problem explained first. The final chapter deals with special clinical situations.
