Published Reviews This book provides the guidance and expertise you the student or practicing cardiologist needs to get high-quality images of the heart and the vessels in order to properly diagnose disease. It gives you the various do's and don'ts in getting and interpreting cardiac computed tomography scans (CCTs), written by two cardiac imaging specialists.One outstanding feature of this book is its immense number and clarity of the images. Some are black-and-white, while others are two-color or multi-color. Most of the pages contain at least one image and some of them have as many as a dozen. In the captions, you will also find detailed descriptions of the conditions depicted in the photos.This is an excellent book on the subject of cardiac and vascular CT. ˜Nano Khilnani
