Preface
For more than two decades, I have aspired to learn the optimal role and contribution of transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography toward the management of patients with cardiac and aortic disease. Initially, I approached echocardiography as a lot of younger attendings did, as being the “answer” to all questions. At that time, the use of echocardiography had grown rapidly; CT had little to offer for the assessment of cardiac disease; and cardiac MRI was an exotic diagnostic modality of great complexity but that had little availability and minimal involvement in acute cases.
At a later juncture, I endeavored to learn cardiac CT and cardiac MRI because they promised more insofar as cardiac and aortic imaging were concerned. CT has grown spectacularly over the past decade, and cardiac MRI has gained clinically powerful and well-validated pulse sequences. As I came to know the three methods with a more balanced approach, investment of time, and level of awareness, I discovered that I wanted to understand none of them as singular diagnostic entities. Rather, I wanted to understand their individual strengths and weaknesses and how they may together afford the best possible means to satisfy the diagnostic needs of all of our cases, especially the most complicated ones. The greater challenge appears to be establishing the boundaries of the contributions of the different modalities, a matter that continues to evolve as the frontiers of each modality progress.
Whilst learning cardiac CT and cardiac MRI I gained, by way of relative comparison, a better understanding of, and a definitely renewed appreciation of, what role echocardiography, my first diagnostic modality of interest, affords patients with cardiovascular disease. When on-call after hours, when the sense of medicine is immediate and real—because the clinical stakes of decisions and their consequences are real—echocardiography is a wonderful diagnostic test to reach for as a means to contribute to the best of our abilities toward patient care.
