About this title
This comprehensive textbook on the echocardiographic assessment of pediatric and congenital heart disease has been updated for a second edition with an emphasis on new technologies. This highly-illustrated full-color reference contains over 1200 figures, and offers over 600 video clips on a companion website.
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
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.
