Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Echocardiography is an excellent noninvasive tool for the assessment of ventricular size and both systolic and diastolic function, and it is routinely used in patients with heart failure. This review will discuss the role of echocardiography in heart failure diagnosis, prognostic assessment and in the management of heart failure patients.
