Although a variety of cardiac imaging methods are available, their effective use requires knowledge of their underlying principles, clinical applications, potential pitfalls, and expense. This book presents the basics of echocardiography, nuclear imaging, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and provides insight into their appropriate use. It covers state-of-the-art approaches for automated non-invasive systems for early cardiovascular and coronary artery disease diagnosis. It includes several prominent imaging modalities such as MRI, CT, and PET technologies. It focuses on major trends and challenges in this area, and presents the latest techniques for cardiovascular and coronary image analysis.

Key Features

  • Takes an integrated approach to cardiovascular and coronary imaging, using machine learning, deep learning and reinforcement learning approaches
  • Covers state-of-the-art approaches for automated non-invasive systems for early cardiovascular disease diagnosis
  • Provides a perspective on future cardiovascular imaging and highlights areas that still need improvement
