Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a basic echocardiographic textbook that encompasses all aspects of cardiac ultrasound. … intended audience includes anyone interested in developing the skills required to either acquire and/or interpret cardiac ultrasound images including students, sonographers, cardiology fellows, and echocardiographers. … a book that is well suited as a text for trainees and as a refresher for practicing clinicians. … this book has raised the bar for a basic echocardiographic text." (Michael C Cunningham, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2008)
