Echocardiography is the most comprehensive imaging test in the diagnosis of heart failure (HF). The test provides structural, functional, and hemodynamic information noninvasively. The first part described the findings of echocardiography in patients with systolic HF and diastolic HF. In the second part of the series, we will discuss the value of echocardiography in right HF, pulmonary vascular diseases, cardiac resynchronization therapy, ventricular assist device, and heart transplantation.
