Echocardiography is one of the most useful and powerful diagnostic tools in the assessment of cardiac structure and function. It remains a rapidly expanding modality, with new techniques constantly developing and maturing. Building on the success of the second edition, the third edition of Making Sense of Echocardiography: A Hands-on Guide provides a timely overview for those learning echocardiography for the first time as well as an accessible handbook that experienced sonographers can refer to. The strong clinical focus and concentration on real-life scenarios make this book relevant in day-to-day practice. Key updates for this edition include the latest guidelines for the evaluation of diastolic function and pulmonary hypertension, and fully updated reference intervals throughout.

Key Features

• Covers not only the fundamentals of echocardiography including ultrasound physics, but also new technologies such as 3D echocardiography
• Provides a comprehensive approach for the echo trainee and serves as a useful reference for more seasoned echocardiographers
• Incorporates current guidelines and reference intervals throughout
