Current and Future Applications of Magnetic Resonance in Cardiovascular Disease

Overview

This timely monograph focuses exclusively on the current and emerging use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) as clinical diagnostic and scientific investigative tools in cardiovascular disease.

While MRI is now primarily being used to depict morphology, the innate benefit of this modality is unparalleled precision in the quantification of cardiac function and blood flow. This potential is intriguingly explored in a number of chapters that describe the ...

Overview

This timely monograph focuses exclusively on the current and emerging use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) as clinical diagnostic and scientific investigative tools in cardiovascular disease.

While MRI is now primarily being used to depict morphology, the innate benefit of this modality is unparalleled precision in the quantification of cardiac function and blood flow. This potential is intriguingly explored in a number of chapters that describe the utilization of MR techniques for myocardial tagging, myocardial perfusion, and coronary flow quantification. The continuous development of MRS as a realistic probe for in vivo elucidation of myocardial metabolism, myocardial oxidation mechanisms, and myocardial viability is also detailed.

Magnetic resonance angiography has now evolved into an impressive imaging modality for several regions of the circulation, and the contributors provide lucid and in-depth profiles of them all. Readers will learn the optimal techniques and applications in the thoracic and abdominal aorta, carotid, lower limb, and coronary arteries -- as well as some of the insights into cardiovascular physiology, pharmacology, and metabolism that MRI/MRS-assisted research has discovered.

This book provides a lucid, comprehensive, and expert overview of an increasingly important modality in detecting and understanding cardiovascular disease.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel A. Henry, MD, FACR (Medical College of Virginia at Virginia Commonwealth University)
Description: This title is one of a series of monographs sponsored by the American Heart Association and the second in five years to focus on the cardiovascular applications of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and spectroscopy. The editors have assembled an international faculty to author chapters on the spectrum of clinical applications and research efforts.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as a compendium of the latest information on this rapidly evolving technology.
Audience: Those familiar with or already engaged in this area will find this book quite useful, but it is not well suited for those just beginning to explore cardiovascular MR. Its broad scope, supported by its relatively brief, readable chapters make it an ideal companion to more basic sources on the subject. The reader can quickly peruse the chapter material and then expand the topic through the ample and current references.
Features: Five sections include multiple chapters each on various cardiovascular MR techniques, selected topics in morphology, cardiac functional applications in ischemic heart disease, MR angiography, and spectroscopy. There is a minimum of overlap considering the number of chapters, topics, and contributors. Some of the technology discussed may not be commercially available, but the majority of the techniques and appropriate software are patient ready. These very technical discussions are complemented with two chapters dealing with cost-effectiveness and the challenges of managed care, while another chapter includes study CPT codes and provides procedure protocols.
Assessment: The rapid developments in MR technology and its applications in cardiovascular disease make it very difficult to develop a textbook on this subject. This monograph fills a unique niche providing substantive, relatively comprehensive, and current information complementing other more atlas-type texts. This addition to the monograph series is a very capable successor to its 1993 predecessor on cardiovascular MR.

This American Heart Association monograph probes the evolving role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) as clinical diagnostic and research tools. The 78 contributors focus on MR techniques, imaging morphology, function, angiography, and MRS in the diagnosis of acquired and congenital heart disease and vascular disease. Optimal techniques for investigating the various circulatory regions are described, as is the potential of MR for myocardial tagging and perfusion, coronary flow quantification, and elucidating myocardial mechanisms .
