Echo Made Easy (Sam Kaddoura)

This excellent book provides a practical and clinically useful introduction to echocardiography. The author explains the echo techniques available, what an echo can and cannot give, and, importantly, puts echo into a clinical perspective. The sections are ordered with the techniques most often used to diagnose a particular clinical problem explained first. The final chapter deals with special clinical situations. The book is written in a conversational and accessible style. It is essential reading for anyone wishing to learn about echo – doctors, technicians and medical students. Experienced echocardiographers will find it as a refresher and reference source in pocket-size. It covers areas relating to clinical aspects of heart disease (e.g causes of murmurs, endocarditis etc) which are practical and often missing from such books. It has ‘normal values’ and the figures and illustrations are very good and clear and clinically useful.
