"The book focuses on the time tested way of "the Socratic method" to teach the key concepts to busy clinical cardiologists, fellows, anesthesiologists and sonographers using a multiple choice question & answer format. The book will emphasize diagnostic interpretation rather than clinical management. This book is comprehensive with chapters ranging from fundamentals to new technologies. The format of each chapter is standardized with 3 types of questions. At the beginning, there are simple Type I questions followed by an answer. Then, Type II questions involving a question associated with a still frame graphic (M-Mode, 2-D or a 3-D) come next and are followed by an answer. Finally, Type III questions are presented involving case studies associated with several questions based on movies and still frames"--

Covering both classical modalities of echocardiography and newer techniques, Clinical Echocardiography of the Dog and Cat shows how to assess, diagnose, and treat canine and feline heart disease. A clinical approach demonstrates how these modalities may be used to acquire images, and then how you can recognize and identify patterns, relate them to different diseases, and manage patient care with those findings. The print book includes a companion website with 50 videos of cardiac ultrasound exams and procedures. Written by veterinary cardiology specialists and echocardiographers Eric de Madron, Valerie Chetboul, and Claudio Bussadori, this indispensable echocardiology resource is ideal for general practitioner veterinarians as well as specialists, including cardiologists and radiologists. Dedicated coverage of canine and feline echocardiography emphasizes a more in-depth discussion of cardiac ultrasound, including the newest ones such as Tissue Doppler and speckle tracking imaging, and transesophageal and 3D echocardiography. A practical, clinical approach shows how these echocardiographic modalities are not just research tools, but useful in diagnosing and staging heart disease in day-to-day practice. Book plus website consolidates offers current information into a single cohesive source covering classical modalities and newer techniques, as well as updates relating to normal echocardiographic examinations and values. 50 videos on the companion website demonstrate how to perform echocardiography procedures, illustrating points such as swirling volutes, color flow display of blood flows, dynamic collapses secondary to pericardial effusion, and tumors flicking in and out of the echocardiographic field. A section on presurgical assessment helps you assess risk and prepare for catheter-based correction of cardiac defects — accurate measurements and proper device selection are key to a successful procedure. Over 400 full-color illustrations and 42 summary tables help you achieve precise, high-quality imaging for accurate assessment, including photographs of cadaver animal specimens to clarify the relationship between actual tissues in health and disease and their images.
As the field of echocardiography has evolved, the role of the echocardiographer has shifted toward providing an integrated assessment of echocardiographic data in conjunction with other clinical data in each patient. THE PRACTICE OF CLINICAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, 2ND EDITION addresses this change in focus with an emphasis on the clinical roles of health care professionals with specialized expertise in this field. Each chapter provides an advanced level of instruction, written by an expert in the field, building upon the basic material in Otto's companion volume, TEXTBOOK OF CLINICAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, 2ND EDITION. It provides up-to-date, relevant information on not only the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of echocardiographic images and Doppler flow data, but also on how this information might affect clinical decision making.

This book describes the role of basic and advanced imaging techniques in the diagnosis of different types of cardiomyopathy, including dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and infiltrative/storage cardiomyopathies. While the main focus is on echocardiography, the applications of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography are also described. Throughout, a clinically oriented approach is employed: detailed attention is paid to differential diagnosis and numerous high-quality images depict the main features of the various types of cardiomyopathy. Consideration is also given to the genetics of cardiomyopathies, with analysis of genotype-phenotype relationships. Finally, the potential value of imaging in prognostic assessment and in guiding treatment is described.
