"The purpose is to present the principles, techniques, and clinical applications of various cardiac imaging modalities in a comprehensive and concise manner. ... This is a comprehensive and concise reference for everyday use in echocardiography and imaging labs for cardiology fellows and cardiologists. It is a practical guide to a technical practice that will aid in daily clinical decision-making." (John C. Gulotta, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
