Written by expert pediatric cardiologists at the Mayo Clinic and other leading institutions, this book provides a comprehensive review of echocardiographic evaluation and diagnosis of congenital heart disease in pediatric and adult patients. Coverage includes advanced techniques such as tissue Doppler, three-dimensional echocardiography, intracardiac and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Chapters provide complete information on the full range of abnormalities and on evaluation of valve prostheses and the transplanted heart. More than 1,300 illustrations, including over 900 in full color, complement the text. Purchase includes online access to AVI clips developed at the Mayo Clinic of the congenital-specific lesions illustrated in the book.
Atlas of Fetal Echocardiography has attempted to explain the concepts of fetal cardiac imaging in a simplified manner. The book is amply illustrated starting from basic embryology to the diagnosis of structural defects. The basics of Doppler has also been covered. The layout of the book has been well designed for easy reading. I hope the authors will explore this area in greater depths in the years to come and further simplify this complex subject. Ultrasonography and Echocardiography have become the two most common tools for the obstetricians in their day-to-day practice. Their use was previously limited to just biometry and routine detection of anomalies. Nowadays, lots of research and development has been going on in this particular field. With the advent of color Doppler high resolution machine STIC and Continuous Wave Doppler, it has become very easy to scan fetal heart and to detect anomalies. In the routine ultrasonography the sonographer aims at detecting something which is not normal in fetal heart. On the other hand, fetal echocardiography, makes us PASSS in our efforts (Position, Axis, Size, Symmetry and Squeeze). Advancements in technology as well as increased capability of sonographer and sonologist has expanded the use of USG as a diagnostic tool for evaluation of fetal anatomy and fetal heart. In this atlas, we have tried to explain the basic use of these new modalities and we are sure that it would be extremely useful to the beginners entering in this field of diagnostic procedures as well as to those more experienced obstetricians by providing them something new.

Transesophageal Echocardiography for Congenital Heart Disease represents a unique contribution as the only contemporary reference to focus exclusively on the clinical applications of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in congenital heart disease (CHD). Written by numerous prominent specialists and renowned leaders in the field, it presents a comprehensive, modern, and integrated review of the subject in light of the cumulative experience and most recent advances in the technology. Topics related to CHD include: (1) physics and instrumentation of TEE, particularly as they apply to the structural evaluation; (2) specialized aspects of the examination, with emphases on technical considerations pertinent to both pediatric and adult patients with congenital cardiovascular pathology; (3) segmental approach to diagnosis and functional assessment; (4) extensive discussion of the TEE evaluation of the many anomalies encompassing the CHD spectrum; (5) use of the imaging modality in the perioperative and interventional settings; and (6) important aspects of 3D TEE evaluation. Richly illustrated by more than 700 figures/illustrations and 400 videos, this textbook will serve as an indispensable resource for all who use TEE in the care of both children and adults with CHD, from the novice to the expert.

Anatomic specimens by both pediatric and adult cardiologists. The intended cut in planes of section corresponding to the echocar emphasis is on tomographic morphology and not on diographic views help in the understanding of the echo specialty applications such as fetal, contrast, or Dop cardiographic sections. Composite photographs relate pler echocardiography. different planes of section or cardiac events. Still-frame The tomographic approach to congenital anomalies is photography cannot always adequately relate real-time the imaging modality of the 80s and is applicable to echocardiography, computerized tomography, and imaging events. However, the emphasis of this text is to demonstrate the tomographic morphology and no at magnetic resonance imaging. It is the building block tempt is made to discuss in detail functional or physio from which the expected three-dimensional imaging logic events. techniques of the 1990s will be developed. The wide spread clinical application of these imaging modalities Those performing two-dimensional echocardiography should have a working knowledge of cardiac anatomy has rekindled interest in cardiac anatomy and pathol and common congenital aberrations.
