Abstract

Echocardiography plays an important role in the diagnosis of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). It determines the cause and readily provides a reliable noninvasive assessment of left and right ventricular function and filling pressures. This technique also has a tremendous potential in guiding therapy and tracking the clinical response. This review focuses on its prognostic power.
