About the Author

Catherine M. Otto, MD, Professor of Medicine, Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology; Director, Cardiology Fellowship Program; Co-Director, Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic; Associate Director, Echocardiography Laboratory, University of Washington, Seattle, WA --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Catherine Otto is the J. Ward Kennedy-Hamilton Endowed Chair in Cardiology, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Heart Valve Clinic at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington.

Dr. Otto is recognized as an expert on calcific aortic valve disease. Dr. Otto's research has transformed our understanding of this disease process, showing that it is an active disease process that may be amenable to medical therapy, rather than being an inevitable consequence of aging. Her research on the aortic valve includes validation of noninvasive measures of disease severity, the first prospective study of disease progression, immunohistologic studies establishing the cellular and molecular mechanisms of valve disease, epidemiologic studies defining the clinical risk factors associated with calcific valve disease and a landmark study demonstrating that even mild valve thickening, called aortic sclerosis, is associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes.

In addition, Dr. Otto is the author of several cardiology books: The Textbook of Clinical Echocardiography (5th Edition), The Practice of Clinical Echocardiography (4rd Edition), Valvular Heart Disease (4rd Edition, co-edited by Robert O. Bonow, MD), Atlas of Intraoperative Echocardiography (with Don Oxorn) and the Echocardiography Review Guide ( 2nd Edition with Rosario Freeman and Becky Schwaegler). She is a Cardiology Editor-in-Chief for the online medical textbook Up-to-Date and recently was appointed Editor in Chief of the journal Heart.

I found this book is useful for all the cardiology trainee as it is well written, easy to understood and there is many figures. However, it did not mention the new technology in the field of echocardiography such as the tissue doppler, contrast echo. I hope the next edition will include this and the illustrations will be more colorful.

It is always OK to use more than one book for study of a subject but for ECHO Feigenbaums is the bible. The 6th edition is a great book and DVD-ROM. Recommended for all levels of echocardiologists.

Ottos book is a helpful extra book. If you want to stick to one book get Feigenbaum's.

Well written and easy to understand. Many TTE references are less useful to a beginner in TEE without much TTE experience.

Format: Hardcover
This book has always been regarded as the 'bible' of echocardiography. I disagree. Although it is very comprehensive, I have found a few errors (either in formulas or diagrams) throughout the book. This is very disturbing as it should not happen in a book as highly regarded as this. For someone who is learning echocardiography, this book is not written in a way easiest to understand. Often, description are complex and bit around the bush. I had to re-write some parts to make it easier to comprehend. Coupled with the errors found, I have wasted considerable amount of time to make the best of this book. An echocardiography expert could have easily pointed out the errors. For a learner, when the formulas/diagram don't match or make sense, one often spend hours trying to work out why, look up in google etc, only to find that it is an error in the book.

This book was one of the required textbooks for my Cardiac ultrasound program. It is well written and concise, with an explanation of basic principals of each pathology, and even technical details. The illustrations are also very nice. A very good addition is at the end; she added a "Echo Exam", which also includes important calculations. I recommend this book for fellow cardiac sonography students as well as cardiology fellows.

Has all the necessary information about echo as long as your not looking to read about 3-D. For the price, its worth it.
