Designed to be of benefit to both cardiologists and radiologists, CT and MR in Cardiology covers all aspects of this fast-growing subspecialty, providing a current, comprehensive resource for physicians at the point of care. Cardiologists will find authoritative guidance on the performance and interpretation of CT angiography and MR to complement echocardiography and angiography, and radiologists will find practical, highly illustrated information on specific cardiac CT and MR diagnostic procedures.

Key Features
  • Offers detailed, cross-sectional CT and MR normal anatomy of the coronary arteries and the heart and arterial and venous vascular systems
  • Features more than 200 generously illustrated imaging diagnoses focused on practical review of their pertinent MR and CT imaging findings
  • Covers key topics such as imaging of coronary heart disease and its complications, diagnosis and evaluation of ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathies, imaging and evaluation of pericardial disorders, cardiac oncology, diagnosis of patients with acute chest pain, and the use of imaging in congenital heart disease
  • Enhanced eBook version included with purchase, which allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices
