Description

Today’s preeminent authorities in cardiac and vascular imaging present dependable diagnostic guidance—complimented by high-quality color illustrations—on both the common and less common diagnoses encountered in practice. Unlike other cardiovascular imaging textbooks, this resource highlights key imaging findings—and examines the appropriate role—of all current imaging modalities, including among many others 64-detector-row and dual-source cardiac CT, cardiac MRI, and advanced CT and MR angiography. For each diagnosis, you’ll also find concise summaries of terminology, protocol advice, interpretive guidance, imaging findings, key facts, differential diagnosis, pathology, clinical issues, a diagnostic checklist, and selected references. At the same time, the book’s user-friendly bulleted format enables you to access all of this information remarkably quickly.

Key Features

  • 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.
