Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology: Imaging Companion to Braunwald

Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology: Imaging Companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease

Expert Consult - Online and Print

Atlas of Nuclear Cardiology, an Imaging Companion to Braunwald’s Heart Disease, offers the practical, case-based guidance both cardiologists and radiologists need to make optimal use of nuclear imaging techniques in the evaluation of cardiovascular function. Drs. Ami E. Iskandrian and Ernest V. Garcia discuss hot topics including PET and PET-CT, SPECT and gated SPECT, myocardial perfusion imaging, equilibrium radionuclide angiocardiography, and equilibrium radionuclide angiography in a consistent, clearly illustrated format. The fully searchable text is also online at - supplemented with an image and video library - making this an ideal resource for mastering nuclear cardiology.
