Applied Echocardiography in CAD is a comprehensive guide to imaging techniques for a variety of heart conditions.

Divided into two sections; section A covers the fundamentals of imaging techniques, and section B covers the clinical applications of these techniques. Variations of echocardiography in the first section include right heart evaluation, contrast echocardiography, and tissue Doppler imaging.

Section B is sub-divided into heart conditions including acute coronary syndrome, stable angina, advanced heart failure, and coronary artery diseases in paediatric age groups. Each topic begins with a clinical scenario.

Applied Echocardiography in CAD provides an excellent source of reference for cardiologists and residents faced with these conditions day-to-day.
