Written by national and international echocardiography experts from the Cleveland Clinic and other leading institutions, Clinical Echocardiography Review: A Self-Assessment Tool is a question-and-answer book to help trainees and clinicians assess and expand their knowledge of echocardiographic studies. The book contains over 1,000 questions and answers in 28 state-of-the-art chapters ranging from basics such as the echocardiography examination, physics, and artifacts, to clinically oriented topics such as atrial fibrillation, prosthetic valves, cardiomyopathies, and pericardial diseases, to new technologies such as dyssynchrony assessment, strain, and strain rate. Each chapter contains simple multiple-choice questions, questions based on still frame images, and questions involving clinical cases with moving and still frame images. The questions test knowledge of M-mode, two-dimensional, three-dimensional, Doppler, transesophageal, contrast-enhanced, and stress echocardiography. A companion website offers all the questions in either study or test mode.
