As the field of echocardiography has evolved, the role of the echocardiographer has shifted toward providing an integrated assessment of echocardiographic data in conjunction with other clinical data in each patient. THE PRACTICE OF CLINICAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, 2ND EDITION addresses this change in focus with an emphasis on the clinical roles of health care professionals with specialized expertise in this field. Each chapter provides an advanced level of instruction, written by an expert in the field, building upon the basic material in Otto's companion volume, TEXTBOOK OF CLINICAL ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, 2ND EDITION. It provides up-to-date, relevant information on not only the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of echocardiographic images and Doppler flow data, but also on how this information might affect clinical decision making.
