In a societal and economic climate of increasing pressure for appropriate, justified and optimized imaging, stress echocardiography offers the great advantages of being radiation-free, relatively low cost, and with a staggering versatility: we can get more information with less cost and risk. For a long time, the scope and application of stress echo remained focused on coronary artery disease. In the last ten years, it has exploded in its breadth and variety of applications. From a black-and-white, one-fits-all approach wall motion by 2D-echo in the patient with known or suspected coronary artery disease now we have moved on to a omnivorous, next-generation laboratory employing a variety of technologies from M-Mode to 2D and pulsed, continuous, color and tissue Doppler, to lung ultrasound and real time 3D echo, 2D speckle tracking and myocardial contrast echo on patients covering the entire spectrum of severity from elite athletes to patients with end-stage heart failure and ages from children with congenital heart disease to the elderly with low-flow, low-gradient aortic stenosis.

The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules About this book Over the past twenty years, stress echocardiography has developed into a well-established technique that is versatile, patient friendly, and relatively inexpensive. This new, extensively revised and enlarged edition of Stress Echocardiography documents all of the very significant advances made since the fourth edition.
The early chapters place the technique within a historical context and describe its pathophysiological basis.
Thereafter, all aspects of stress echocardiography are discussed, clearly and in detail, by the distinguished pioneer, Eugenio Picano, and other contributors carefully selected for their expertise. Both mainstream and emerging applications are explained, and systematic comparisons with competing and complementary cardiac imaging techniques are provided. The text is supported by a large number of high-quality illustrations. This book is invaluable not only to cardiologists but also to non-experts, such as technicians and students.
Reviews From reviews of the previous editions: "Dr. Picano, one of the pioneers of stress echo, describes the pathophysiological basis of the technique extremely well. In addition, both the advantages and the limitations of the method are covered in a clear and comprehensive way. The book provides an up-to-date, extensive and comprehensive coverage of various means of performing stress echocardiography, the implications that each suggest with diagnostic flow charts, the new technological developments with their applications ….
At present it is the only existing book covering all aspects of stress echocardiography. This book is a pleasure to read and reflects the tremendous contribution of dr. Picano in this field.
Adobe DRM 4. This extensively revised and enlarged edition of this long-seller documents the very significant advances made since the fifth edition and is entirely written by Eugenio Picano, a pioneer in the field sharing his lifetime experience with the help of an international panel of 50 contributors from 22 countries representing some of the best available knowledge and expertise in their respective field. In a societal and economic climate of increasing pressure for appropriate, justified and optimized imaging, stress echocardiography offers the great advantages of being radiation-free, relatively low cost, and with a staggering versatility: we can get more information with less cost and risk. For a long time, the scope and application of stress echo remained focused on coronary artery disease.
