Overview

This pictorial instructional pocket guide, derived from Cardiovascular MRI Tutorial, is a quick reference for MRI technologists, technologist trainees, and radiology or cardiology residents or fellows. Routine cardiac imaging protocols are presented in step-by-step fashion for immediate reference during an MRI examination. Each chapter displays a specific protocol from start to finish, including positioning, anatomy, and sequence terminology, with easy-to-follow illustrative images. Coverage includes protocols for cardiac function; cardiac function/viability; cardiac function/non-ischemic viability; arch; arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C); pulmonary vein electrophysiology (EP) ablation; constrictive pericarditis; atrial or ventricular septal defect (ASD or VSD); anomalous coronaries; and cardiac thalassemia.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kelley J Adair, RT (R)(MR)(Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This informative and illustrative book guides skilled MRI technologists through performing appropriate cardiac sequences pertinent to most basic pathological protocols.
Purpose: According to the preface, the purpose is to assist technologists through routine cardiac protocols "quickly and with ease." Every chapter has illustrative images including basic anatomy and sequence terminology and includes step-by-step protocols to follow for specific cardiac pathologies. Due to the complexity of cardiac imaging, a protocol guide book is essential to assist technologists in becoming independent imagers. This book meets the objectives and provides accurate and helpful information for seasoned MRI technologists.
Audience: It is intended for MRI technologists who have already specialized and trained in cardiac imaging.
Features: This book covers the different sequences and images that should be performed for common cardiac diagnoses and/or pathologies. It starts with some of the basic diagnoses, and illustrations assist in how to angle a prescription and show how the final image should look. The book progresses to more involved exams, but continues with the step-by-step instructions. The best part of this book is its layout and ease of use. It is easy to follow and find information in a timely manner; which is essential for workflow. This is essentially a protocol book, so it is important and wonderful that it sticks to step-by-step instructions for each protocol. One unique feature is that for each pulse sequence, each manufacturer's terminology is listed. This is extremely helpful as we use both Siemens and GE products and the terminology is very different.
Assessment: "I have found this book helpful already! I have never seen a protocol book for cardiac imaging before. This is just what our department needs. Our cardiologists and radiologists are driving us to become more independent in cardiac imaging, and this book will be extremely helpful in fulfilling this goal. The only shortcoming is that the chapters are somewhat repetitive. Since every protocol has the same first five sequences, these really do not need to be repeated in every chapter. Perhaps in the beginning of each protocol, it could reference the "first five basic images." Overall, I really enjoy having this book and will use it regularly. "
