Color Blood Flow Imaging of the Heart

Overview

This book looks at the newly developed technique of color blood flow imaging (CBFI) - a noninvasive ultrasonic method which will change essentially the diagnostic procedures in cardiology in the years to come. Additionally, CBFI yields new insights into physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms of the cardiovascular system which cannot be investigated with any other method. The reader is introduced to this fascinating method by typical findings of CBFI in all common types of heart disease. The diagnostic ...

Overview

This book looks at the newly developed technique of color blood flow imaging (CBFI) - a noninvasive ultrasonic method which will change essentially the diagnostic procedures in cardiology in the years to come. Additionally, CBFI yields new insights into physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms of the cardiovascular system which cannot be investigated with any other method. The reader is introduced to this fascinating method by typical findings of CBFI in all common types of heart disease. The diagnostic possibilities of CBFI are shown by the presentation of high-quality color pictures which have been taken directly from the screen without video play-back; these are integrated into the text and extensively explained in the legends. The reader is also confronted with normal findings as well as with artefacts of the method. After studying this book he should be familiar with CBFI and be able to perform investigations by himself. This book presents typical findings of CBFI in all forms of commonly encountered heart disease to an extent not available in any other publication.
