The book Echo Made Easy begins with the basic principles of ultrasound and Doppler and the clinical applications of various echo-modalities including 2-D echo, M-mode scan, Doppler echo and colour-flow mapping. This is followed by an account of different echo-windows and normal echo-views along with normal values and dimensions. The echo features of various forms of heart disease such as congenital, valvular, coronary and hypertensive disorders are individually discussed. Due emphasis has been laid on pitfalls in diagnosis, differentiation between seemingly similar findings, their causation and their clinical relevance. Understandably, figures and diagrams can never create the impact of dynamic echo display on the video-screen. Nevertheless, they have been specially created to leave a long-lasting visual impression on the mind. In keeping with the spirit of simplicity, difficult topics like complex congenital cardiac disease, prosthetic heart valves and transoesophageal echocardiography have been purposely excluded. This book is particularly meant for students of cardiology as well as keen established clinicians wanting to know more about echo.
