Echocardiography remains the most commonly used imaging technique to visualize the heart and great vessels, and this clinically oriented text by Drs. Scott D. Solomon, Justina C. Wu, and Linda D. Gillam helps you make the most of its diagnostic and prognostic potential for your patients. Part of the highly regarded Braunwald’s family of cardiology references, Braunwald’s Essential Echocardiography PDF expertly covers basic principles of anatomy and physiology, the appearance of normal variants across a wide range of cardiovascular diseases, and the hands-on approaches necessary to acquire and interpret optimal echocardiographic images in the clinical setting.
- Abundant illustrations provide a superb visual learning experience both in print and online. Images convey clear, classic examples that represent decades of experience over multiple institutions, as well as recent advances in the field.
- More than 485 accompanying video clips mirror the images in the text, with easy-to-follow links from the figure citation to the video online.
- Each section includes one or two clinical cases that illustrate key concepts.
- Written by expert echocardiographers and sonographers who emphasize practical applications throughout the text, and superbly illustrated by physician-artist Dr. Bernard Bulwer.
- Ideal for anyone currently using or learning to use echocardiography, including cardiologists, cardiology fellows, sonographers, anesthesiologists, critical care physicians, emergency physicians, radiologists, residents, and medical students.
- Expert Consult™ eBook version included with purchase. This enhanced eBook experience allows you to search all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

Scott D. Solomon, MD is The Edward D. Frohlich Distinguished Chair, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Director of Noninvasive Cardiology and Senior Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He directs the Cardiac Imaging Core Laboratory and the Clinical Trials Endpoints Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He received his A.B. from Williams College and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Solomon’s research interests have focused on changes in ventricular structure and function following myocardial injury, modifiers of risk and influences of outcome in patients following myocardial infarction and with chronic heart failure, cardiovascular safety of non-cardiovascular therapies, factors that influence the transition from hypertension to heart failure, and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. He has pioneered the use of cardiac imaging in cardiovascular drug and device development and use of imaging in clinical trials. He and his research group have played a leading role in many international clinical trials in heart failure, hypertension and myocardial infarction, including the SAVE, HEART, VALIANT, CHARM, PEACE, OVERTURE, MADITCRT, ALOFT, ALLAY, TREAT, RED-HF, ALTITUDE, FREEDOM, TOPCAT trials. He led the NIH-sponsored Celecoxib Cross-trials Safety Study which directly informed regulatory agencies about the safety of widely used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents. He directs the Cardiac Imaging Center for the NHLBI Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study and Hispanic Community Health Study – Study of Latinos (HCHS-SOL), the two largest NIH cohort studies. Dr. Solomon has recently studied the role for angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibition in heart failure. He served as member of the executive committee for the PARADIGM-HF trial, led the first successful Phase II trial in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and is currently leading the ongoing PARAGON-HF outcomes trial in HFpEF. He is PI for the NHLBI funded INVESTED trial studying influenza vaccine to reduce cardiovascular events.
