From reviews of the previous editions:
"Dr. Picano, one of the pioneers of stress echo, describes the pathophysiological basis of the technique extremely well. In addition, both the advantages and the limitations of the method are covered in a clear and comprehensive way. The book will be useful to cardiologists and even "non-experts" such as echo technicians and students".
(Jos Roelandt, Cardiov Res; 1994; 28: 1: 143)
"A narrative and enjoyable style ... An extremely valuable and important book for those who practise stress echo and are interested in clinical and scientific aspects of the method". (H.P. Kuhl, Der Internist, 1999; 9: 958)
"An extremely well written, unique Picano-style. This beautiful book is an essential part of every good cardiological library".
(A. Boccanelli, G Ital Cardiol; 1998; 28:81)

There have been four translations (English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese) and thousands of copies sold of this international bestseller, written by a stress echo pioneer (i.e., according to his own definition, someone who started to work with the technique at a time when it clearly could not work). In the present third edition, the book has been enriched by contributions of an outstanding, truly international panel of experts, and encompasses the whole spectrum of applications of stress echocardiography.The content will interest both researchers and clinicians. The topics covered range from the pathophysiological basis to the economic implication; from recognition of myocardial viability to the induction of ischemia; from methodological technicalities to risk stratification strategy; from diagnosis of coronary artery disease and coronary vasospasm to the emerging applications beyond coronary artery disease in heart transplant, valvular disease and dilated cardiomyopathy.About the Author:
