Optimize diagnostic accuracy with Cardiovascular Imaging, a title in the popular Problem Solving in Radiology series. Drs. Suhny Abbara and Sanjeeva Kalva use a problem-based approach to help you make optimal use of the latest cardiovascular imaging techniques and achieve confident diagnoses.
- Make the most effective use of today's imaging techniques , including PET and SPECT.
- Perform effective interventions using the newest grafts, stents, and coils.
- See conditions as they appear in practice with more than 2,350 images detailing anatomy, normal anatomic variants, and pathology.
- Make optimal clinical choices and avoid complications with expert protocols and tricks of the trade.
- Avoid common problems that can lead to an incorrect diagnosis. Tables and boxes with tips, pitfalls, and other teaching points show you what to look for, while problem-solving advice helps you make sound clinical decisions.
- Quickly find the information you need thanks to a well-organized, user-friendly format with consistent headings, detailed illustrations, and at-a-glance tables.

"The attractiveness of this concept is that it approaches the concerns that many medical practitioners have as they move through their everyday practice and it makes it easy for practitioners to utilise the book as questions occur as their work evolves...The great stength of this book is that it contains a wide breath of material in an extremely accessible, problem-orientated manner that can be rapidly accessed...It allows the reader to rapidly become an expert in a small area that he or she may be concerned about and the style of the chapters effectively accentuates the key points in each area...Overall, therefore, an excellent comprehensive text presented in a way that allows the reader easy access to important bits of information without getting bogged down or imtimidated by the size of the whole textbook itself. This will make an excellent addition to any imaging library and would be a first-rate companion next to the reporting workstation."
