Ideally suited for those clinicians who have already mastered basic principles, The Practice of Clinical Echocardiography, 6th Edition, provides expert guidance on interpreting echocardiographic images and Doppler flow data. Through practical, clear, and carefully edited content, world-renowned expert Dr. Catherine M. Otto and her team of more than 65 leaders in echocardiography demonstrate how to apply advanced knowledge to daily clinical decision making. Newly reorganized sections cover advanced principles for the echocardiographer, best practices for echocardiography laboratories, transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, intraoperative and interventional echocardiography, and point-of-care cardiac ultrasound.

Key Features
  • Provides an in-depth, clear, and concise review of the latest clinical applications of echocardiography with an advanced level of discussion, now thoroughly updated with new clinical knowledge, new treatments and guidelines, the latest evidence, and innovations in advanced echocardiographic imaging. 

  • Reviews the technical aspects of data acquisition and analysis with an emphasis on outcomes. 

  • Covers key topics such as transcatheter interventions for valvular heart disease, prosthetic valve dysfunction, the athletic heart, cardiac assist devices, cardio-oncology, heart disease in pregnancy, advanced 3D echocardiography, strain imaging, stress echocardiography, and much more. 

  • Includes updated illustrations throughout-nearly 1,000 echocardiograms, Doppler tracings, anatomic drawings, and flow charts for diagnostic approaches-as well as hundreds of echo video clips keyed to images in the text. 

  • Discusses limitations, pitfalls, and alternate approaches. 

  • Features chapter summary boxes with new "Quick Reviews” and a practical approach to echocardiographic data acquisition, measurement, and interpretation.

Published Reviews Doody's Core Titles® 2022

"The quality of the content of the book is excellent. Given the complexity of the text and subject manner, this book is a valuable resource for cardiologists and cardiology fellows to further their knowledge and understanding of echocardiography. The text is organized in a way that allows readers to build an advancing framework to better grasp more advanced topics. The sixth edition provides updated guidelines and treatment strategies based on up-to-date research that was not present in the previous edition."
