Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eric K. Louie, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This is the second edition of a multiauthored text on cardiac imaging that serves as a companion to the widely renowned fifth edition of Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine. It provides a multidisciplinary approach to evaluating cardiac disease via such diverse imaging techniques as radiography, echocardiography, cine CT, nuclear imaging, PET, and MRI.
Purpose: The need for a new edition is amply justified by the rapid growth in technology in this field and is reflected in the 14 new chapters in this new edition.
Audience: The audience targeted includes cardiovascular specialists who have a special interest in one aspect of cardiac imaging, but who also need to have an appreciation for the relative contributions from competing technologies. The book will also be of great interest to general cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, physicians with special interests in cardiovascular diseases, and trainees.
Features: In addition to authoritative monographs on each of the different imaging modalities and their applications, there are well-written integrative overviews on the theoretical aspects of cardiac imaging and the multidisciplinary approaches to specific classes of cardiac problems. In this era of high technology, it is refreshing to see that the contributions of the clinical examination (chapter 8) and plain chest radiography (chapter 17) to the integrated evaluation of the patient have not been neglected.
Assessment: Needless to say, illustrations are key to a successful text on imaging, and this book abounds with well-chosen, well-reproduced cardiac images that greatly enhance the book. The editors are renowned authorities in cardiac imaging and have pooled the resources of more than 100 experts in the field of cardiovascular imaging and diagnosis to provide an authoritative, integrated, and comprehensive description of this rapidly emerging field. Undoubtedly, among those physicians with an interest in cardiovascular physiology, pathology and diagnosis, this book should enjoy the same popularity that its companion text enjoys with the cardiology community at large.
