Rational Basis of Stress Echocardiography

  • Eugenio Picano

Abstract

Stress echocardiography stems from three lines of evidence placed at three different levels: biochemical, pathophysiologic, and clinical.

Keywords

Myocardial Blood Flow Stress Echocardiography Stun Myocardium Ventricular Septal Rupture Systolic Thickening 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
