Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Clinical applications of, and technical advances in, 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the heart continue to revolutionize the field. In this introductory resource for radiologists, cardiologists, internists, and others with an interest in cardiovascular MRI, Kwong (Harvard Medical School/director, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston) compiles 32 contributions by international experts which provide a multidisciplinary perspective on its engineering basis, normal and pathological cardiac physiology, clinical validation, diagnostic and prognostic implications. With an emphasis on its advantages over other noninvasive imaging modalities and improved contrast agents, techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging, atherosclerosis plaque imaging, and targeted MRI are reviewed in the text and ample illustrations. The companion DVD includes numerous clinical case presentations. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) is one of the latest noninvasive imaging methods for cardiac disease. The aim of this book is to provide the reader with the technological background and clinical applications of current CMR imaging. Up-to-date and practical, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging will be of great use to cardiologists, radiologists, primary care physicians, MRI technologists, and other health care providers with interests in CMR.
