Overview

Written by internationally eminent experts in cardiovascular imaging, this volume provides state-of-the-art information on the use of MRI and CT in the assessment of cardiac and vascular diseases. This Second Edition reflects recent significant advances in cardiovascular MRI technology and the emergence of multi-detector CT as an important diagnostic modality, particularly for ischemic heart disease.

New chapters in this edition cover coronary CTA and plaque characterization. A brand-new interventional MR section covers catheter tracking and devices, endovascular interventions, MR guided cardiac catheterization, and endovascular delivery of gene and stem cell therapy. More than 900 illustrations present diagnostic information in unprecedented detail.
