"The book focuses on the time tested way of "the Socratic method" to teach the key concepts to busy clinical cardiologists, fellows, anesthesiologists and sonographers using a multiple choice question & answer format. The book will emphasize diagnostic interpretation rather than clinical management. This book is comprehensive with chapters ranging from fundamentals to new technologies. The format of each chapter is standardized with 3 types of questions. At the beginning, there are simple Type I questions followed by an answer. Then, Type II questions involving a question associated with a still frame graphic (M-Mode, 2-D or a 3-D) come next and are followed by an answer. Finally, Type III questions are presented involving case studies associated with several questions based on movies and still frames"--
