We have presented a review of recent advances in medical imaging which are relevant to the practice of anesthesia and associated research. The appropriate interpretation and use of the information derived from these noninvasive technologies can prevent unnecessary morbidity and mortality. Echocardiography remains the most advanced tool for noninvasive cardiac imaging because of its applicability for most cardiac disorders and its exquisite spatial resolution. Two-dimensional systems produce… CONTINUE READING
