Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Echocardiography has made significant progress over the last 2 decades so much so it has become an integral test as well as a cardiac consultative tool in of itself. Some aspects of cardiology remain challenging and despite guidelines and updates remain difficult to diagnose and treat. The purpose of this special issue dedicated to echocardiography is to provide clinical reviews on common conditions that incorporate clinical literature and recent advances on these topics and summarize it for the busy clinician who can apply these to improve their daily practice. Multiple images and bullet points in each article support easy readability. The color images and the videos in the reviews allow better understanding.
The reviews should be 5000 words or more with an exhaustive literature review (> 75 refs or more). But these values are flexible.

The APC of all contributions invited by the Guest Editor will be $600.
