Focusing on one of the most exciting imaging modalities available in modern clinical cardiology, Atlas of Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography provides a comprehensive analysis of this modality drawn from the authors' experience. Designed to cover the breadth and depth of the topic, the book covers the evaluation of prosthesis, interventional cardiology techniques, and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiology. Each chapter begins with normal cardiac structure and function followed by abnormalities and demonstrates how to measure and interpret cardiac chamber sizes and function. Transesophageal echocardiographic images are juxtaposed with top-quality anatomic specimens, nearly 3000 images in total, to give a clear understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy. The clinical emphasis provides an authoritative review of the available techniques and the images that can be obtained with them.
