  • Reviews the top imaging diagnoses in cardiology—including those for both common and less common entities—for complete guidance for even the most challenging clinical cases.
  • Summarizes the key findings obtained through CT, MR, radiographs, nuclear medicine, echocardiography, Doppler ultrasound—and other pertinent modalities for each diagnosis—enabling you to compare your findings for the most accurate and informed diagnoses.
  • Keeps you up to date with the most relevant developments in the field including cardiac gated coronary MDCT, cardiac MR viability imaging, and 64-slice vascular CT angiography.
  • Features bulleted lists of concise, yet detailed information for at-a-glance review.
  • Includes an extensive image gallery for each entity, depicting typical and variant imaging findings for easy comparison to the images you see in practice.
  • Displays a "thumbnail" visual differential diagnosis for each entity to help you easily identify conditions.
  • Offers more representative images, more case data, and more current references than other references...saving you valuable research time.

This new addition to the DI series written by many of the best-known names in cardiac and vascular imaging contains a vast amount of concentrated information about cardiovascular disease entities and numerous high-quality, state-of-the-art images. Unlike other cardiovascular imaging textbooks this text focuses not just on one imaging modality such as MRI or CT, but rather highlights the imaging findings and appropriate role of all current imaging modalities that are pertinent to individual diagnoses. The imaging material is superb throughout and the author list includes experts from all aspects of modern cardiac and vascular imaging. Images are clear and convey typical and atypical examples of specific diagnoses, and "mimics" and potential pitfalls that may affect diagnostic accuracy. Additionally the reader is provided with high quality colour illustrations, protocol advice, interpretive guidance, and important differential diagnoses (with example images), as well as the key imaging findings and appropriate role of other diagnostic modalities. This book is comprehensive in that it addresses the most common cardiovascular diagnoses encountered in daily practice, as well those with which most imagers have less experience. For each entity the reader can expect to find a unique array of state of the art images spanning the relevant spectrum of imaging modalities. Individual chapters summarize the key findings shown by CT, MR, Radiographs, Nuclear medicine, Echocardiography, Doppler Ultrasound and other pertinent diagnostic modalities for each diagnosis. This is a user-friendly book with bulleted format that radiologists, cardiologist, cardiovascular surgeons and interventionalists will find very useful in the interpretation room. The book provides the reader with a comprehensive yet accessible reference. Its user-friendly format helps the user to quickly find the diagnoses they are seeking and create an appropriate list of differential diagnoses. In short, this cardiovascular imaging reference is practical, accessible and in-touch with the realities of multimodality diagnostic imaging and is sure to assist the practising cardiovascular imagers in making confident diagnoses for their patients.
