Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The attractiveness of this concept is that it approaches the concerns that many medical practitioners have as they move through their everyday practice and it makes it easy for practitioners to utilise the book as questions occur as their work evolves...The great stength of this book is that it contains a wide breath of material in an extremely accessible, problem-orientated manner that can be rapidly accessed...It allows the reader to rapidly become an expert in a small area that he or she may be concerned about and the style of the chapters effectively accentuates the key points in each area...Overall, therefore, an excellent comprehensive text presented in a way that allows the reader easy access to important bits of information without getting bogged down or imtimidated by the size of the whole textbook itself. This will make an excellent addition to any imaging library and would be a first-rate companion next to the reporting workstation."

RAD, June 2013

"This is an excellent review of the use of various imaging modalities in the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of cardiovascular diseases, and a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each of them for the various clinical conditions. The quality of the images is excellent." Bennett Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia) 5 star Doody Rating!

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bennett S. Greenspan, MD, MS (Medical College of Georgia)
Description: This is an excellent, comprehensive guide to the various imaging modalities for the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of cardiovascular disease.
Purpose: The authors discuss the use of these imaging modalities to detect and characterize cardiovascular disease, including which imaging modalities are best for problem solving in various clinical conditions and their use in the evaluation and management of these conditions.
Audience: The book is written for practitioners in radiology, cardiology, and nuclear medicine, as well as trainees in these fields. It also should be useful for radiologic and nuclear medicine technologists. Although the authors claim it will be useful for medical students, it may be a bit advanced for them.
Features: The book begins with a section on imaging techniques and acquisition methods for the various modalities, with a critical review of when to use each. After a review of cardiac and vascular anatomy, the book is then organized by cardiovascular disease entities. It is especially useful for determining which test to perform when, and the various advantages and limitations of each modality. Having a discussion of each of these modalities in one book is particularly helpful. Radiation issues in cardiac CT are also addressed.
Assessment: This is an excellent review of the use of various imaging modalities in the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of cardiovascular diseases, and a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each of them for the various clinical conditions. The quality of the images is excellent.
