Cardiovascular disease has been showing patterns of extensive rise in prevalence globally, affecting quality of life and leading as a cause of death worldwide.
It has been really a challenge for modern medicine to diagnose cardiovascular disease in early stages because of a large array of etiological factors and the insidious nature that leads to functional disability.
Echocardiography is witnessed as the gold standard for evaluation of patients with heart failure. Furthermore, recent technological advances have provided information not only for new cardiac structural and functional indices but also for myocardial deformation with high sensitivity and specificity, making it more useable for various cardiovascular diseases.
This Special Issue of Diagnostics, entitled ‘Advances in Point-of-Care Ultrasonography’, focuses on recent advances in echocardiography techniques and its impact on diagnosis, evaluation of management, and prognosis.
It aims to publish innovative research articles with clinical impact and scientific value, including observational studies, clinical trials, and review articles in various cardiovascular diseases.
