The first edition of "Echocardiography: The Normal Examination and Echocardiographic Measurements" (ISBN
0646391399) was published in April, 2000. It was a soft cover book with 251 printed pages of text and mostly black and white images. Itís popularity quickly grew beyond Australia and New Zealand until it became a preferred text for many sonographers and teachers of echocardiography in the USA, the UK and beyond. The first edition of this title is now "out of print".
For the new edition (pictured at left), all chapters have been thouroughly revised to incorporate recent developments
and new guidelines in Echocardiography. As in the first edition, the focus remains predominately on the practical aspects of clinical Echocardiography including methodology, limitations and clinical relevance.
A valuable guide for the trainee sonographer and teachers of echocardiography, it includes over 350 figures including practical examples, illustrations and ultrasound images, mostly in full colour. Chapters on the principles of two dimensional ultrasound imaging and Doppler echocardiography have been expanded and include sections relating to imaging and Doppler artifacts.
This new edition contains 336 printed pages of information and is bound in an attractive, durable hard cover.
