Principles of Cardiac and Vascular Computed Tomography book cover

Principles of Cardiac and Vascular Computed Tomography

Principles of Cardiac and Vascular Computed Tomography has everything you need to successfully obtain and interpret CT and CTA images. Stuart J. Hutchison-a premier cardiac imaging specialist-explains the dos and don’ts of CCT so you get the best images and avoid artifacts. Get only the coverage-from evidence-based CTA to noncoronary lesions-you need with clinically oriented, practical information presented in a consistent format that makes finding everything quick and easy. High-quality images and access to the full text and more online at make this the one cardiovascular computed tomography resource that has it all.
