Description: This overview of cardiac imaging covers multiple image modalities and their relationships to anatomy, cardiac pathology, and each other.
Purpose: The purpose is to walk readers through both congenital and acquired heart disease in a manner that elucidates choice of imaging modality and technique. Underlying physics and technical aspects of the modalities are covered as they apply to clinic use.
Audience: This is intended for physicians treating patients at the bedside, as well as those interpreting the various cardiac imaging modalities.
Features: This book presents a review of the technical aspects of cardiac imaging, with a focus on clinical utility. It includes multiple illustrations of images and techniques, along with corresponding anatomy and other modes of imaging.
Assessment: This will be an excellent reference for clinical cardiologists, advanced imaging cardiologists, and cardiology fellows rotating through cardiac imaging. The constant comparison between cardiac anatomy and the acquired images will be particularly useful for fellows in training.
