Echocardiography in the Context of Other Cardiac Imaging Modalities

Abstract

Echocardiography maintains a central role in cardiovascular assessment despite recent advances in multimodality imaging. Some of the advantages of echocardiography include portability, rapid availability, low cost, safety and excellent temporal resolution. This in combination with continued technological development is the reason why cardiac ultrasound is the imaging tool of first choice in almost all conditions bar the assessment of flow limiting coronary stenosis. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, coronary computed tomographic angiography, single photon emission computed tomography and positron emission tomography each have unique advantages. The strengths and weaknesses of the different imaging modalities are discussed in this chapter and their utility outlined in conjunction with echocardiography. The synergistic relationship between echocardiography and multimodality imaging is emphasized. Seven main topics are addressed when considering echocardiography in the context of other imaging modalities and include volumes and function, morphology, tissue characterization, coronary disease, cardiac masses, pericardial disease and diseases of the aorta.
