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.
