Emphasizing the clinical importance of various echocardiography applications, this edition has chapters on systolic and diastolic left ventricular function, infective endocarditis, prosthetic valves, contrast echocardiography, stress echocardiography, systemic diseases, and operative and perioperative echocardiography. More than 1,200 illustrations complement the text.
