In recent years, echocardiography has evolved from a qualitative diagnostic tool into a complex and sophisticated technique that is able to provide accurate, quantitative information driving the management of most cardiac diseases. Despite the availability, affordability and scientific value of advanced echocardiography techniques such as Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) and Speckle Tracking, there has been a lack of accessible information about their use in real–life medical practice.

This practical book is the first comprehensive resource with truly international authorship covering the theory and clinical applications of advanced myocardial imaging as a diagnostic, monitoring and prognostic tool.

Edited by internationally recognized experts in cardiac imaging, Myocardial Imaging: Tissue Doppler and Speckle Tracking collates the latest research into a specific, in–depth resource.
The book focuses on how to use advanced cardiac imaging techniques in everyday clinical practice, presenting relevant material in a logical format.
Each chapter covers a different clinical application of TDI and Speckle Tracking techniques and is illustrated with full color images and tables, allowing quick and easy reference to clinically appropriate information.
It is accompanied by an invaluable CD of video clips that illustrate concepts in the text and provide real examples of echocardiography in practice.
Clear, concise key facts and summaries throughout the book enable fast decisions at point of care.

This book is an invaluable resource for cardiologists, sonographers or other healthcare professionals who want to get the most out of the new technology available on echo machines.

Thomas H. Marwick, MBBS, PhD

Tom Marwick has been involved in cardiac imaging research for over 20 years, over which time he has published over 300 papers and 5 books, and held over 50 research grants. His main current interests are in myocardial tissue characterization and the quantification of myocardial function, ventriculo–arterial interaction and studies of how cardiac imaging techniques can influence patient outcomes and cost–effectiveness of care. His work has been widely recognized nationally and internationally, with awards from the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand, and National Heart Foundation of Australia, and invitations to present named lectures at the American Society of Echocardiography (Feigenbaum Lecture 2003) and European Association of Echocardiography (EuroEcho Lecture 2004). Dr Marwick is strongly committed to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and has been an invited speaker at most major Cardiology meetings over the last 15 years.

Jing Ping Sun, MD
Dr. Jing Ping Sun was full professor and Chief of Cardiology for more than 20 years in a top hospital in Beijing China. She has published more than 120 papers and 8 books worldwide. She held many leadership positions while in the Peoples Republic of China. Since her immigration to the United States her academic career has flourished. Her research activities at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation have been exceptional and recognized by multiple publications in the leading cardiology journals. She has presented abstracts of important observations at all the major cardiology scientific sessions in the United States and has been an invited speaker at international meetings. Her expertise is echocardiography is evident not only by her publications but also by her special contract work for important clinical trails where echocardiography has been a key aspect of the investigations.
She was the first Chinese Doctor selected as International Fellow of America College of Cardiology (FACC) and International Fellow, Council on Clinical Cardiology of American Heart Association (FAHA).
