About this book

Over the past twenty years, stress echocardiography has developed into a well-established technique that is versatile, patient friendly, and relatively inexpensive. This new, extensively revised and enlarged edition of Stress Echocardiography documents all of the very significant advances made since the fourth edition. The early chapters place the technique within a historical context and describe its pathophysiological basis. Thereafter, all aspects of stress echocardiography are discussed, clearly and in detail, by the distinguished pioneer, Eugenio Picano, and other contributors carefully selected for their expertise. Both mainstream and emerging applications are explained, and systematic comparisons with competing and complementary cardiac imaging techniques are provided. The text is supported by a large number of high-quality illustrations. This book is invaluable not only to cardiologists but also to non-experts, such as technicians and students.

Reviews

From reviews of the previous editions:

"Dr. Picano, one of the pioneers of stress echo, describes the pathophysiological basis of the technique extremely well. In addition, both the advantages and the limitations of the method are covered in a clear and comprehensive way. The book will be useful to cardiologists and even 'non-experts' such as echo technicians and students" (CARDIOVASCULAR RESEARCH)

"A narrative and enjoyable styleà An extremely valuable and important book for those who practice stress echo and are interested in clinical and scientific aspects of the method." (DER INTERNIST)

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The book is written for physicians and sonographers practising stress echocardiography and for beginners … . The book provides an up-to-date, extensive and comprehensive coverage of various means of performing stress echocardiography, the implications that each suggest with diagnostic flow charts, the new technological developments with their applications …. . At present it is the only existing book covering all aspects of stress echocardiography. This book is a pleasure to read and reflects the tremendous contribution of dr. Picano in this field." (Bharati Shivalkar, Acta Cardiologica, Vol. 59 (4), 2004)
