This volume contains most of the invited lectures presented at the second "Interna tional Symposium on the Evaluation of Cardiac Dynamics by Ultrasound" which was held on May 27-28, 1982, in Hamburg. Main topics of the symposium dealt with new echocardiographic technologies such as the transesophageal technique and digital image processing of echocardio grams, as well as with latest clinical and experimental results in the fields of contrast and Doppler echocardiography, tissue characterization and analysis of left ventricular function. We are greatly indebted to all participants who kept a very tight schedule in order to have these proceedings available at the time of the meeting. We cordially thank Dr. M. Schluter for his editorial assistance, Mrs. B. Kratzenberg for her secretarial help, and the Pharma-Schwarz Company for their generous financial support.
