This highly practical diagnostic tool is an indispensable resource for both the office and the noninvasive cardiovascular laboratory.

The accompanying CD contains images and video-clips displaying the dynamic aspects of vascular pathology to aid diagnosis and learning. Each image can be enlarged to enable the user to fully discern the main features, and for ease, the CD can be searched by image type, condition/disease or techniques.
