Essentials for Proficiency in Basic Cardiovascular Ultrasound

Designed by top physicians and professors of cardiovascular medicine, this comprehensive review of basic echocardiography has been created as a teaching tool for echocardiography fellows and others interested in learning about the use of cardiovascular ultrasound in clinical practice. This set includes 15 lectures on a variety of topics, beginning with the normal TTE and TEE examinations, and then covering the mitral and aortic valves in-depth, left and right heart function, physics, prosthetic valves, and more. Each lecture has been carefully crafted to include a thorough review of practical concepts, references to ASE’s Guidelines and Standards, video examples of normal and abnormal echocardiograms, and case studies designed to provide real-word examples. A workbook correlates with the lectures to provide a printable guide for each presentation.
