Overview

The book is based on a joint symposium organized by the Departments of Cardiology, Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine of the University Hospital Leiden and the Cleveland Clinical International Center. Both centers have a long-standing reputation in the various aspects of cardiac imaging techniques and in their clinical applications. Faculty members from each of the two centers have written reviews in those areas in which they have extensive experience, selecting advances in imaging techniques in ischemic heart disease as the central topic. All major imaging techniques are addressed: echocardiography, cardiovascular nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance, and contrast angiography. All chapters are written with the appropriate technique as well as the specific disease in mind. Recent developments in the field mean that the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease has become more accurate, with an inherent improvement in patient management. The book will aid the physician to differentiate and recognize the viability of the myocardium in ischemic heart disease; an essential step in choosing therapeutic modalities.
Audience: All cardiologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, physicists and basic scientists who wish to stay up to date in this exciting field.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Fillmore, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This book represents selected proceedings from the symposium by the same name organized by the Cleveland Clinic and Leiden University and held in Leiden in August 1995. The 11 short articles in this volume briefly review the current status of myocardial scintigraphy and myocardial PET imaging, MR coronary angiography and spectroscopy, stress echocardiography and stress MR imaging, intravascular ultrasound, and quantitative coronary angiography.
Purpose: This slim volume provides brief and up-to-date reviews of each of the areas. The individual chapters nicely contrast the relative strengths and weaknesses of the different imaging techniques of evaluation of ischemic heart disease.
Audience: This is a useful study aid for residents and fellows wishing an introduction to the imaging evaluation of ischemic heart disease. It will also be a useful adjunct for experienced practitioners who wish a brief survey of the current state of the art in this rapidly evloving area.
Features: The tables are valuable for providing concise summaries of the published experiences with the techniques to date. Although the illustrations provided are of high quality, there are perhaps too few. The reference lists are up-to-date and as such are an extremely useful entry into the literature for those readers who wish to delve deeper into any single subject area.
Assessment: This book succinctly reviews the current state of the listed imaging techniques. It does not, however, pretend to represent an encyclopedic review of a mammoth subject. As such, this book will be a valuable addition to training program libraries and to individual practitioners seeking a quick review of this topic.
