    Introduction

    Echocardiography Review Guide , Second Edition

    A companion workbook for the fourth edition of the Textbook of Clinical Echocardiography
    This Echocardiography Review Guide complements the Textbook of Clinical Echocardiography , fourth edition, providing a review of basic principles, additional details of data acquisition and interpretation, and a step-by-step approach to patient examination for each diagnosis. In addition, self-assessment questions allow the reader to be more actively involved in the learning process. All the self-assessment questions in the second edition are new and supplement the questions available in the first edition.
    This book will be of interest to practicing cardiologists and sonographers as a quick update on echocardiography and will be of value to cardiology fellows and cardiac sonographer students who are mastering the material for the first time. Cardiac anesthesiologists will find helpful information about details of the examination and a chapter dedicated to intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography. In addition, primary care physicians using handheld echocardiography can use this book to get started and to improve their echocardiography skills. Multiple-choice questions provide a review and self-assessment for those preparing for echocardiography examinations and may be useful in echocardiography laboratories for continuous quality improvement processes.
    The chapters are arranged in the same order as the Textbook of Clinical Echocardiography , and we recommend that these two books be used in parallel. As in the textbook, there are introductory chapters on basic principles of image acquisition, transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, other echocardiographic modalities, and clinical indications. Each of the subsequent chapters focuses on a specific clinical diagnosis, including ventricular systolic and diastolic function, ischemic cardiac disease, cardiomyopathies, valve stenosis and regurgitation, prosthetic valves, endocarditis, cardiac masses, aortic disease, adult congenital heart disease, and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography.
    A step-by-step approach to patient examination is detailed. Information is conveyed in bullet points, with each set of major principles followed by a list of key points. Potential pitfalls are identified, and approaches to avoiding errors are provided. Data measurements and calculations are explained with specific examples. Numerous illustrations with detailed figure legends demonstrate each major point and guide the reader through the teaching points. At the end of each chapter, the short Echo Review Guide from the Textbook of Clinical Echocardiography is included for quick reference. Self-assessment questions help the reader consolidate the information and identify areas where further study is needed. Along with the correct answer to each question, there is a brief discussion of how that answer was determined and why the other potential answers are not correct.
    This review guide is intended as an adjunct to formal training programs in echocardiography; a book does not replace hands-on training or practical experience. The three of us fully endorse current standards for education and training of physicians and sonographers in clinical cardiac ultrasound as provided by the American Society of Echocardiography, American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists. We support training in accredited programs with formal certification of sonographers and evaluation of physician competency. The material in this book reflects the clinical practice of echocardiography at one point in time. Cardiac imaging is a rapidly changing field, and we encourage our readers to stay up to date by reading journals and other online sources, and by attending national meetings and continuing medical education courses.
    Acknowledgments
    It is never possible to fully acknowledge all those who help make a book possible; however, we would like to thank some of those who helped us along the way. First, the cardiac sonographers at the University of Washington deserve our special appreciation for the excellence of their imaging skills and the time they dedicated to acquiring additional images for us and discussing the finer points of data acquisition: Pamela Clark, RDCS; Sarah Curtis, RDCS; Caryn D’Jang, RDCS; Michelle Fujioka, RDCS; Jennifer Gregov, RDCS; Yelena Kovalenko, RDCS; Carol Kraft, RDCS; Chris McKenzie, RDCS; Amy Owens, RDCS; Joannalyn Sangco, RDCS; and Todd Zwink, RDCS. Theresa Shugart and Joan Raney in the Cardiology Division also helped greatly in several aspects of book preparation. Special thanks are due to the many readers who provided comments and input on the text and questions. Our appreciation extends to Natasha Andjelkovic and Louise King at Elsevier and the production team who supported this project and helped us make it a reality.
    Finally, we all want to sincerely thank our families: not only our husbands for their unwavering and continual encouragem
