Main description:

Praise for the First Edition:
"Well written, well organized [and] easy to read...provides everything that a physician would need to know in order to include cardiac CT in his or her practice...this book was a pleasure to read."--Radiology

With a special emphasis on the complementary nature of anatomic and functional cardiac data, Clinical Cardiac CT: Anatomy and Function -- now in a lavishly illustrated Second Edition -- ensures physicians develop the skills they need to interpret cardiac CT images with confidence.

This volume begins with a brief introduction to the essentials of CT technique, normal cardiac anatomy, and anatomic anomalies. The expert authors then discuss the clinical application of cardiac CT for risk stratification, how to evaluate coronary artery disease, and the preoperative planning for and postoperative assessment of percutaneous cardiac procedures, including coronary stents and bypass grafts.


  • Entirely new chapters address evaluation of the
    thoracic aorta, congenital heart disease in the adult, triple rule-out CT
    angiography, and the latest innovations in cardiac CT
  • 1,157 high-resolution CT images -- including over 500
    images that are new to this edition -- demonstrate the full range of normal
    cardiac variations and pathologic findings
  • An accompanying DVD contains 3-D displays of anatomic
    relationships and cine clips of more than 200 cases that demonstrate cardiac
    function and valve evaluation
  • New information on frontier techniques, including
    myocardial perfusion and targeted contrast agents

This highly visual reference
is a must-have for anyone involved in performing or interpreting cardiac CT
images. It is an essential resource for radiologists, cardiologists, or
cardiothoracic surgeons, as well as for residents or fellows preparing for Boards or a cardiac imaging rotation.
