Gold standard introductory text

This is an ideal text for a general cardiology fellow. Just the right level of detail. Mayo way of displaying images can be a bit frustrating for those in other institutions that do not use the Mayo format.

Awesome text book

This is great book for echocardiography to own. Every Cardiology fellow should start reading this book first before shooting for the bigger texts. Concepts are explained in simple terms. Schematic diagrams are wonderful.

Great Echo Text

I have recently completed fellowship and have recently taken the cardiology boards. Over the last year I have used/borrowed the textbooks by Weyman, Feigenbaum, Otto, and have owned the most recent baby Otto. The Echo Manual is the best single source for a new cardiology fellow and for anyone studying for the Echo boards. The clarity, depth, and breadth in such are small package are not matched by any of the other books. It has excellent diagrams and tables. It does a great job of covering complex topics such as diastology, constriction vs restriction, and congenital heart disease. The Weyman is out of print. The big Otto is too big for board review. The baby Otto is too simple to be of help to fellows and techs. The Feigenbaum is a good book and it comes with a DVD of examples. However, the Echo Manual simply covers the topics better. It works great as a board-review book and just as great as a reference. If you only have room for one book in your budget, I would recommend this book. Cons: No DVD. Mayo displays the R and L heart in reverse of everyone else. Text can be dense. Overall, these are minor gripes.

beautiful, comprehensive, nicely updated

Great for the echo basics and reference. Images are beautiful and well-labeled. Updated version has several nice new tables and chapters on goal directed/special imaging. Great pathology correlates. Even includes updates on strain and newer techniques. Convinced our library to get it... Going to buy it before echo boards.

an authoratative text

the second edition of the manual is the work of three big maestros. the first chapter is an overview which is about man and machine. thereafter follow chapters on acquisition of images, transthoracic and trans esophageal. the two chapters on hemodynamic assessment and vulvular heart diseases are astonishingly lucid. other chapters are fundamentally excellent.the book concludes on an all important chapter on correlative toto, this manual is small in size but large in authority.manan
