The purpose of this book is to provide up-to-date technical and practical information aboutvarious cardiac imaging techniques for the assessment of cardiac function and perfusion, as well astheir potential relative roles in clinical imaging. This book also aims to stimulate use of the newdevelopments of integrated cardiovascular imaging and molecular targeted imaging. It will be thecharge of future investigators and clinicians to define the appropriate role(s) for each of theimaging modalities discussed in this book. As distinct from other textbooks, this book providesnumerous illustrations of clinical cases for each imaging modality to guide the reader in thediagnosis of cardiovascular diseases and the management of patients based on the imagingmodality used. We hope that this book will help the reader to understand the values andlimitations of the imaging techniques and to determine which test, in which patient population,and for which purpose would be the most appropriate to use.Yi-Hwa LiuFrans J.
