Provides clear guidance on the performance and interpretation of cardiac CT, with a view to assisting the reader in integrating the modality into daily practice Describes the specific features of the most recent scanners from all four main vendors Discusses upcoming clinical applications such as plaque imaging and functional assessment
The comprehensive assessment of cardiovascular structure and function with computed tomography (CT) has progressed at an astounding rate due to advances in scanning technology and image processing. Given the growing importance of cardiovascular CT, this book collates all relevant imaging findings and presents them in a clinically relevant and practical manner appropriate for the spectrum of physicians who diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. The chapters have been written by an internationally renowned group of contributing authors and present discussion and images which characterize the full spectrum of cardiovascular CT. In addition, the enclosed DVD provides orientation through 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional image sets.
