How I do it: A personal approach to cardiovascular ultrasound techniques

Dr Rosa Sicari

With so many different options available, it can often be difficult to know the best technique to use when approaching a new method or procedure.

In this Cardiovascular Ultrasound collection of How I do it articles, a number of experts from the field of cardiovascular imaging discuss their preferred techniques and the benefits and difficulties that they have experienced.

We hope that these articles will prove an invaluable resource to those attempting these methods for the first time and to those looking for a new approach.
