  • Profoundly helpful!

    By T Holman
    Text is concise, direct, and straightforward without simplifying or abridging its subject matter. As helpful for systematic board review as it is for quick clinical reference on rounds or in the echo lab. The quality of the images and videos is consistently exceptional. Annotations and diagrams are intuitive and well composed. By popular demand, this is the central resource used at my institution for training in the echo lab—both for Cardiology fellows and for Critical Care and Ultrasound fellows from Emergency Medicine.
  • Excellent tool for board review

    This is a fantastic book for fellows learning echocardiography, and contains all necessary info for the echo boards. It's format is easy to use, and links moving echo images of normal and pathology to related texts. Much easier to digest than traditional texts!

    By NY145
    I started using this book during the beginning of my Cardiology fellowship and can honestly say I would have been lost without it. The interactive pictures, videos and text of basic Echocardiography and disease processes were outstanding, and best of all engaging. I would highly recommend this ibook to anyone planning on a career in Cardiology, resident or fellow.
