Marcus Cardiac Imaging: A Companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Elsevier Health Sciences
Completely revised and updated edition delivers comprehensive coverage of the field while focusing on practical, clinical advice for the practitioner. Topics include: conventional radiography and angiography, echocardiography, radionuclide imaging, positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrafast computer tomography. Features a new cross-disciplinary section on imaging approaches to specific patient subgroups.
• Covers the basic principles of cardiovascular physiology that serve as the foundation for cardiac imaging. Readers will gain a better understanding of how to use imaging techniques and which ones are best for evaluating specific aspects of cardiac physiology. Illustrates every principle by means of hundreds of vivid imaging examples, line drawings, and full-color photographs.
• Includes a new chapter dealing specifically with the use of chest x-rays in the diagnosis of heart disease - a simple, inexpensive imaging technique that is becoming a lost art. Contains a revised chapter on quantitative coronary angiography, new information on electron beam and spiral CT, and many other significant updates.
