Covering both classical modalities of echocardiography and newer techniques, Clinical Echocardiography of the Dog and Cat shows how to assess, diagnose, and treat canine and feline heart disease. A clinical approach demonstrates how these modalities may be used to acquire images, and then how you can recognize and identify patterns, relate them to different diseases, and manage patient care with those findings. The print book includes a companion website with 50 videos of cardiac ultrasound exams and procedures. Written by veterinary cardiology specialists and echocardiographers Eric de Madron, Valerie Chetboul, and Claudio Bussadori, this indispensable echocardiology resource is ideal for general practitioner veterinarians as well as specialists, including cardiologists and radiologists. Dedicated coverage of canine and feline echocardiography emphasizes a more in-depth discussion of cardiac ultrasound, including the newest ones such as Tissue Doppler and speckle tracking imaging, and transesophageal and 3D echocardiography. A practical, clinical approach shows how these echocardiographic modalities are not just research tools, but useful in diagnosing and staging heart disease in day-to-day practice. Book plus website consolidates offers current information into a single cohesive source covering classical modalities and newer techniques, as well as updates relating to normal echocardiographic examinations and values. 50 videos on the companion website demonstrate how to perform echocardiography procedures, illustrating points such as swirling volutes, color flow display of blood flows, dynamic collapses secondary to pericardial effusion, and tumors flicking in and out of the echocardiographic field. A section on presurgical assessment helps you assess risk and prepare for catheter-based correction of cardiac defects — accurate measurements and proper device selection are key to a successful procedure. Over 400 full-color illustrations and 42 summary tables help you achieve precise, high-quality imaging for accurate assessment, including photographs of cadaver animal specimens to clarify the relationship between actual tissues in health and disease and their images.

Die Ultraschalldiagnostik erobert die Notfallmedizin. Die Notfallsonographie ist mittlerweile fester Bestandteil der Untersuchung eines Patienten in einer Akutsituation. Die Sonographie wird dabei nicht nur innerhalb eines Krankenhauses durchgeführt, z.B. auf Intensivstationen und in Notaufnahmen, sondern zunehmend auch in Form kleiner tragbarer Geräte direkt am Ort des Notfallgeschehens. Potenziell lebensbedrohliche Krankheitsbilder lassen sich mit dem Ultraschall schneller und sicherer diagnostizieren, und damit notfallmedizinische Entscheidungen und Maßnahmen noch frühzeitiger treffen. Über 350 Abbildungen zeigen wie man typische Notfallbefunde mit dem Ultraschall erkennt: • Anatomie und Sonomorphologie aller Organe • Untersuchungsablauf und Optimierungsmöglichkeiten • Die häufigsten Notfallbefunde und deren Differenzialdiagnosen • Informationen zum weiteren diagnostischen und therapeutischen Vorgehen. Die Inhalte des Buches orientieren sich an der 3-Länder-übergreifenden Basisausbildung und dem Curriculum Notfallsonographie von DEGUM, ÖGUM und SGUM. Ebenso sind die Inhalte der Konzepte, wie e-FAST und FEEL integriert. Ein praxisorientiertes und interdisziplinäres Buch - richtet sich an alle Ärzte, die Ultraschall zur Diagnostik unklarer und akuter Befunde einsetzen möchten.
