Written by internationally eminent experts in cardiovascular imaging, this volume provides state-of-the-art information on the use of MRI and CT in the assessment of cardiac and vascular diseases. This third edition, now in four-color, reflects recent significant advances in cardiovascular MRI technology and the continuing emergence of multi-detector CT as an important diagnostic modality, particularly for ischemic heart disease.
Seven new chapters have been added including chapters on anatomy, cardiovascular MR in infants/children, assessing myocardial viability, risk assessment in ischemic heart disease and MR guidance.
