MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) is a rapidly evolving tool for cardiovascular diagnosis, and is becoming increasingly important in guiding cardiovascular interventions. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging presents a state-of-the-art compilation of expert contributions to the field, each examining normal and pathologic anatomy of the cardiovascular system as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging. Functional techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging and assessment of flow velocity are emphasized, along with the exciting areas of artherosclerosis plaque imaging and targeted magnetic resonance imaging. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging represents a multi-disciplinary approach to the field, with contributions from experts in cardiology, radiology, physics, engineering, physiology and biochemistry and offers new directions in noninvasive imaging.


Feature:

Interdisciplinary and integrated approach to noninvasive cardiac imaging


CMR for assessment of heart disesases, arterial elasticity, blood flow velocity, and ventricular function


Back cover:

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) is a rapidly evolving tool for cardiovascular diagnosis, and is becoming increasingly important in guiding cardiovascular interventions. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging presents a state-of-the-art compilation of expert contributions to the field, each examining normal and pathologic anatomy of the cardiovascular system as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging. Functional techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging and assessment of flow velocity are emphasized, along with the exciting areas of artherosclerosis plaque imaging and targeted magnetic resonance imaging. This cutting-edge volume represents a multi-disciplinary approach to the field, with contributions from experts in cardiology, radiology, physics, engineering, physiology and biochemistry, and offers new directions in noninvasive imaging.


Contemporary and comprehensive, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a vital resource for cardiologists and radiologists striving to lead the way into the future of this important field.
