Challenging Cases in Echocardiography


Every Friday morning for more than 10 years, world-renowned cardiology experts in the Echocardiography Laboratory at New York University Medical Center have continuously conferred over the week's cases, creating a unique record of the challenges they faced and advances made in a constantly evolving field. Now from this book you can gain a front-row perspective of those conferences to confront their most instructive, perplexing, and even bizarre cases.

Each case begins with a short clinical presentation and pertinent echocardiographic images, followed by multiple-choice questions on diagnosis and management. With every question answered, you delve further into subsequent questions, discussions, and confirming illustrations.

In this book you'll find—

92 of the most difficult and puzzling cases confronted by renowned experts
More than 400 echocardiographic images, including 250 in full color, accompany the text to bring each case to life
Each case stands on its own, allowing you to explore the book at your convenience cover-to-cover or in brief, random readings
FREE CD-ROM INCLUDED—features images from the text plus special video clips associated with many cases!
