The book consists of a total of 85 chapters organized into seven sections.

  1. The first section deals with the basics of ultrasound, Doppler, speckle tracking, three-dimensional echocardiography, and instrumentation. A short history of echocardiography and Doppler are also included in this section.
  2. The second section consists of various aspects of echocardiography and ultrasound examination. M-mode and two- and three-dimensional transthoracic and transesophageal examination, nonstandard planes, various aspects of Doppler assessment including tissue Doppler, velocity vector and speckle tracking imaging, assessment of endothelial function, contrast echocardiography for evaluation of left ventricular endocardial border opacification and myocardial perfusion, transpharyngeal echo, periaortic echocardiography, and both intracardiac and intravascular ultrasound are dealt with in this section.
  3. It deals with the evaluation of mitral valve disease, mitral regurgitation, aortic stenosis including assessment of low gradient stenosis with preserved left ventricular function, aortic regurgitation, aortic disease, tricuspid and pulmonary valves, pulmonary hypertension, infective endocarditis, and prosthetic valves. Rheumatic heart disease is also included in this section.
  4. Section 4 deals with two- and three-dimensional echocardiographic assessment of the systolic and diastolic function of both left and right ventricles. Newer aspects of structure and function to assess cardiac motion, evaluation of left atrial function, ventricular assist devices, pacemakers, and intracardiac defibrillators and use of echocardiography for the assessment of cardiac hemodynamics and guidance of therapy are also included in this section.
  5. The next section contains chapters covering ischemic heart disease, coronary arteries, and coronary flow reserve, different aspects of stress echocardiography including three-dimensional stress echocardiography, obstructive and non-obstructive cardiomyopathies, differentiation of ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathy, pericardial disorders and tumors and masses.
  6. The next section contains chapters covering ischemic heart disease, coronary arteries, and coronary flow reserve, different aspects of stress echocardiography including three-dimensional stress echocardiography, obstructive and non-obstructive cardiomyopathies, differentiation of ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathy, pericardial disorders and tumors and masses.
  7. Section 6 deals with congenital heart disease and consists of chapters on fetal cardiac imaging, M-mode and two- and three-dimensional assessment of pediatric congenital heart disease, ventricular function, adult congenital heart disease and acquired heart diseases in childhood.
  8. The final section in the book, Section 7, covers systemic diseases, life-threatening conditions, echocardiography in women and the elderly, echocardiography for the electrophysiologist and lung ultrasound. A separate chapter assesses the future of echocardiography and ultrasound.

Lastly, two chapters cover the allied techniques of magnetic resonance imaging and cardiac computed tomographic imaging. A very large number of echocardiographic images and other figures illustrate most of the chapters of the book and six DVDs contain numerous movie clips to supplement the images. These represent a major highlight of the book.

All chapters in this book are written by well-known experts in the field of echocardiography and ultrasound. Because of the large number of contributors, some overlap of content and chapters do exist in the book.

This has been deliberately not excluded because it provides a different perspective to the reader and also serves to reinforce important concepts and echocardiographic findings.
