5.0 out of 5 stars Great Echo Text September 13, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have recently completed fellowship and have recently taken the cardiology boards.

Over the last year I have used/borrowed the textbooks by Weyman, Feigenbaum, Otto, and have owned the most recent baby Otto.

The Echo Manual is the best single source for a new cardiology fellow and for anyone studying for the Echo boards. The clarity, depth, and breadth in such are small package are not matched by any of the other books. It has excellent diagrams and tables. It does a great job of covering complex topics such as diastology, constriction vs restriction, and congenital heart disease.
The Weyman is out of print. The big Otto is too big for board review. The baby Otto is too simple to be of help to fellows and techs. The Feigenbaum is a good book and it comes with a DVD of examples. However, the Echo Manual simply covers the topics better. It works great as a board-review book and just as great as a reference. If you only have room for one book in your budget, I would recommend this book.

Cons: No DVD. Mayo displays the R and L heart in reverse of everyone else. Text can be dense. Overall, these are minor gripes.

5.0 out of 5 stars an authoratative text October 14, 2002
the second edition of the manual is the work of three big maestros. the first chapter is an overview which is about man and machine. thereafter follow chapters on acquisition of images, transthoracic and trans esophageal. the two chapters on hemodynamic assessment and vulvular heart diseases are astonishingly lucid. other chapters are fundamentally excellent.the book concludes on an all important chapter on correlative toto, this manual is small in size but large in authority.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold standard introductory text August 6, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an ideal text for a general cardiology fellow. Just the right level of detail. Mayo way of displaying images can be a bit frustrating for those in other institutions that do not use the Mayo format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome text book March 25, 2008
This is great book for echocardiography to own. Every Cardiology fellow should start reading this book first before shooting for the bigger texts. Concepts are explained in simple terms. Schematic diagrams are wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, comprehensive, nicely updated December 7, 2006
By quickCT
Great for the echo basics and reference. Images are beautiful and well-labeled. Updated version has several nice new tables and chapters on goal directed/special imaging. Great pathology correlates. Even includes updates on strain and newer techniques. Convinced our library to get it... Going to buy it before echo boards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential text on echocardiography September 5, 2011
By Shak
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Easy to read, with many illustrations, tables and diagrams, this is an excellent reference from which to learn echocardiography. The only limitations of the current edition is that it doesn't have the latest information on diastolic dysfunction or right-sided chamber (RA, RV) evaluation. These will need to be supplemented by viewing the guidelines from the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE). The ASE also has an excellent iPad/iPhone app which is quite useful for interpreting echocardiograms, especially when calculating various echocardiographic parameters.

Oh's text continues to be one of the seminal texts on echocardiography. The real decision point is whether to obtain Oh's Echo Manual or Feigenbaum's Echocardiography. Feigenbaum's is more recent (published 2009 vs 2006 for Oh) and thus better reflects current guidelines and advances in technology. Feigenbaum's also has a nice DVD tutorial that accompanies the text. The only problem is that Feigenbaum is nearly twice as long as Oh's Echo Manual, making it a long read. If you are a busy trainee, with limited time for poring over texts, Oh's Manual is the way to go. If you have a research elective or need something to read while on vacation (those airline flights can be long), Feigenbaum's is the way to go.

I obtained an amazing price for The Echo Manual, a brand-new text, via RepTextbooks a reseller on Amazon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't stand the Mayo orientation July 7, 2014
By Rig
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Unless you would like to learn from the Mayo perspective, this book will be very frustrating to read. The text may be good, but I gave up on trying to look at their figures, which are obviously a major part of learning echocardiography. So much of echocardiography is pattern recognition and recognizing what is different from normal. Their imaging perspective makes looking at abnormal images, such as congenital lesions, challenging and just not worth the effort.
