Professor Otto in particular is known for her previous publications and textbook of echocardiography
as a specialist cardiologist, and Professor Oxorn has cardiology as well as anaesthesia fellowships.
revealing 9/5 mmHg pressure gradient across the mitral valve (A), agitated saline injection resulting in opacification of the dilated coronary sinus and subsequently the right atrium (B), three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography
(3D TTE) revealing characteristic findings of PMV including solitary papillary muscle (Figure and Video C, E), funnel shape of mitral valve (Figure and Video F), doming shape of elongated chordae tendinea (Figure and Video C, E) and pear-like shape of left atrium (Figure and Video C, D, E).
The consensus statement affirms that contrast enhancement is an essential part of modern, quality-driven echocardiography
laboratories inside and outside the hospital where both resting and stress echo testing are done.
The book is also strictly for transoesophageal echocardiography
and makes no attempt to cater for the emerging uses of ultrasound in anaesthesia, such as transthoracic or surface ultrasound use.

a worldwide leader in diagnostic medical imaging, today announced new data from a Phase 4, open-label safety study evaluating the effect of DEFINITY([R]) Vial For (Perflutren Lipid Microsphere) Injectable Suspension, an echocardiography

New research revealed at the 19th Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Society of Echocardiography
(ASE) indicates fetal heart ultrasound technology can help detect congenital heart anomalies before birth, thereby allowing doctors to plan treatment sooner.
The use of transoesophageal echocardiography
allowed the immediate diagnosis and appropriate management of the underlying cause of acute haemodynamic instability.
