[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1451176465]

Complex Cases in Echocardiography is a unique text written by a team of top cardiologists at Cedars Sinai Heart Institute. Drawing from their extensive library of echocardiograms, the authors feature 75 cases demonstrating uncommon and puzzling echo findings. Each case begins with a brief clinical presentation, and related images, followed by multiple-choice questions. Detailed answers include patient outcomes and follow-up recommendations. The cases include m-mode, 2-D, 3-D echo, TEE, and Doppler ultrasound. In addition, three fold-out matching quizzes present a particular physical finding or electrocardiogram to be matched with the patient’s corresponding echocardiogram. With the inclusion of cases seen in emergency situations as well as routine readings in an echo laboratory, this text not only introduces the reader to unusual cases, but also reinforces relevant techniques and applications. A companion website includes the fully searchable text and features additional cases, along with actual case video clips. Features: case-based format featuring 75 unusual and bizarre diagnostic dilemmas; questions and answers associated with each case 3 unique fold-out quizzes; and a companion website with fully searchable text and 45 additional cases.

Cardiovascular Imaging

4

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=1840761091]

A host of imaging techniques are available to clinical cardiologists, including nuclear imaging, echocardiography, computerized tomography, and magnetic-resonance imaging. Chamber size, ventricular function, valvular function, coronary anatomy, and myocardial perfusion are among a wide array of cardiac characteristics that can all be assessed noninvasively.

Cardiovascular Imaging systematically reviews each of these major techniques and provides clinical data from well-designed research studies. Following a brief overview of non-invasive cardiac imaging and the stress modalities used to detect coronary disease, case-based chapters are devoted to each of the various imaging techniques. The final chapter provides a glimpse of future possibilities, particularly with respect to molecular imaging. The text is illustrated throughout with amply-sized images.

Demonstrating the values and limitations of the imaging techniques, the book enables practitioners to determine which test, in which patient population, and for which purpose would be the most appropriate to use.
