was performed using a treadmill.
This review text consists of a mock exam that covers the topics on the adult echocardiography
exam outline published by ARDMS (American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography), for those preparing to obtain the Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer credential.
The notion that physical examination is superior to echocardiography
is appealing, but likely incorrect.
But a recent study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC), suggests that, in fact, echocardiography
is being underused.
This study was aimed to determine the diagnostic accuracy and impact of the systematic use of noninvasive tests such as, echocardiography
and multidetector CT in preoperative paediatric patients with TOF and to determine the need for cardiac catheterization and invasive angiocardiography in patients of specific subgroups.
KEY WORDS: Mitral stenosis, Left atrium, Thrombus, Transesophageal echocardiography
When the septation is mild, the condition is often asymptomatic and is an incidental finding during surgery to correct other cardiac abnormalities or during echocardiography
as represented in our case.
Nutritious value-added food company Chiquita Brands International (NYSE:CQB) and the International Medical Outreach (IMO) programme on Thursday jointly reported the inauguration of two echocardiography
laboratories in regional hospitals in Zacapa and Quiche, both located in Guatemala.
Despite growing recognition of the AUC and educational programs aimed at cardiologists and primary care physicians to reduce inappropriate stress echocardiography
, the use of echocardiography
for inappropriate indications has persisted (Widens, Nelson, and Hendel 2013).
Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography
revealed dextrocardia and dilated coronary sinus (CS) (Fig.
In a soft paperback at just under 300 pages and with an accompanying DVD, this book is aimed at perioperative physicians looking for a basic understanding of transoesophageal echocardiography
Objective: The objective of the study was to determine the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and predictive value of fetal echocardiography
in our set up using postnatal echocardiography
as gold standard.
com)-- The Intersocietal Commission for Accreditation of Echocardiography
Laboratories (ICAEL) has renewed its three-year accreditation of South Nassau Communities Hospital's Center for Cardiovascular Health in the areas of adult stress, adult transesophageal, and adult transthoracic echocardiography
Repeat coronary revascularization did not improve outcomes in asymptomatic patients with high-risk exercise echocardiography
findings after an initial revascularization procedure," according to a study published online in Archives of Internal Medicine.
Although exercise stress echocardiography
is useful in symptomatic patients after revascularization, its role in asymptomatic patients is controversial because there is no evidence that identifying problems that cause no symptoms leads to better treatment, nor that treatment improves the course of the disease or patient outcomes.
