Product Description
Finally, a resource that takes full advantage of modern technology. In a major advance for pediatric cardiology, this text/DVD set covers ultrasound physics; laboratory set-up; a protocol for a standard pediatric echocardiogram; quantitative methods of echocardiographic evaluation, including assessment of diastolic function; in-depth coverage of congenital cardiovascular malformations; acquired pediatric heart disease; and topics of special interest, such as 3D echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, and fetal echocardiography.

Amazon-Exclusive Q&A with Author Wyman Lai

Tell us a little bit about your book, who is it aimed at and how will it help them?
This book is a comprehensive textbook of pediatric echocardiography. It covers the latest advances in ultrasound imaging of the heart in children, and also deals with congenital heart disease in fetuses and adults. The textbook is aimed at those who practice and teach pediatric and congenital echocardiography. It provides a comprehensive, integrated approach to pediatric cardiac ultrasound and includes information about the anatomy, pathophysiology, and goals of the echocardiographic examination for each lesion before, during, and after treatment.

What inspired you to write the book?
We, the editors, saw a great need for an updated reference textbook for our trainees and for our colleagues and their trainees. It has been over a decade since the release of the last comprehensive textbook on this topic.

What do you hope readers will get out of it?
The chapters are written by experts throughout North American and Europe. Despite the wide geographic distribution of the authors, a consistent and thorough approach to pediatric echocardiography is provided. The readers will also have a DVD with hundreds of examples of key anatomic and functional issues mentioned in the text

What is different about your book from others in the field?
Its main attraction is that it is recently released and incorporates the latest technologies. It provides a perspective from authors drawn from most of the major pediatric cardiology centers on two continents. It is also the first comprehensive textbook to provide illustrative video clips, which greatly improve the readers’ ability to understand the information in the text and still figures.

What is your day job?
I run a non-invasive pediatric cardiology imaging laboratory at an academic medical center.

How did you get into this line of work?
I like taking care of children, and I enjoy the challenge of diagnosing and treating congenital heart disease. I have had great role models who were devoted to their patients but who also loved to teach.

What would you be if you were not a doctor?
I’d do something else that requires puzzle solving. Perhaps I’d be an engineer or an architect.

And finally, did you enjoy writing this book, and are you planning any others?
It was fun to work with my co-editors and all the authors. Everyone was willing to squeeze in this work despite being already incredibly busy. We’d like to update the textbook periodically in order to keep it relevant and on the cutting edge. Future editions should be more electronically based and accessible to readers over the internet.

From the Back Cover:

Echocardiography is essential in the practice of pediatric cardiology. A clinical pediatric cardiologist is expected to be adept at the non-invasive diagnosis of congenital heart disease and those who plan to specialize in echocardiography will need to have knowledge of advanced techniques.

Echocardiography in Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease addresses the needs of trainees and practitioners in this field, filling a void caused by the lack of material in this fast-growing area. This new title comprehensively covers the echocardiographic assessment of congenital heart disease, from the fetus to the adult, plus acquired heart disease in children.

Topics covered include:

  • ultrasound physics
  • laboratory set-up
  • a protocol for a standard pediatric echocardiogram
  • quantitative methods of echocardiographic evaluation, including assessment of diastolic function
  • in depth coverage of congenital cardiovascular malformations
  • acquired pediatric heart disease
  • topics of special interest, such as 3D echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, and fetal echocardiography

The approach of this book is a major advancement for educational materials in the field of pediatric cardiology, and greatly enhances the experience for the reader. An accompanying DVD with moving images of the subjects covered in the textbook will further enhance the learning experience.
