Overview

This textbook covers the fundamental principles of cardiovascular imaging modalities and their applications for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. The main focus is on the comprehensive diagnosis of clinical conditions/disease entities through the most effective cardiovascular imaging test or combination. The authors discuss the clinical utility and relative value of each test to address specific clinical questions, based on evidence and expert opinion. Each chapter presents information in the following format: overview, discussion of pathophysiology; differential diagnosis/diagnostic evaluation; prognosis; therapeutic guidance with illustration of treatment pathway. A companion Website will offer the full text, ten multiple-choice questions for each chapter, still and cine images, and imaging clips.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher Louis Paris, BS, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: In this book, the authors explain the essential elements of the different types of imaging modalities that have evolved over time in cardiovascular medicine. The discussions begin very basic and then proceed to specific topics to help readers feel confident in their ability to adequately understand the mechanisms of each modality.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a guide for both imaging specialists and clinical cardiologists to help them select and maximize the value of noninvasive imaging tests to answer specific clinical questions. This is important to those in the field of cardiology as cardiovascular imaging is expanding exponentially in an era where cardiologists need to be up to date on these therapies as well as cost-effective. The book meets its objectives, the background and expertise of the authors providing a perfect balance between the different imaging studies used to make the correct diagnosis.
Audience: The intended audience includes imaging specialists, clinical cardiologists, and cardiology fellows. The authors are well-known experts in their fields.
Features: This book covers a wide range of topics from basic physical principles of imaging to detailed imaging findings for specific cardiovascular diseases. The 52 chapters are divided into nine sections and are all structured in a similar format. Relevant tables, charts, and pictures summarize the information, while an online question-and-answer section tests readers' knowledge.
Assessment: This book is extremely useful, providing a detailed review for cardiologists and noninvasive specialists to remain up to date in this expanding area. It has its place as a complete imaging guide for practicing cardiologists.
