Synopses & Reviews
Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is a rapidly evolving imaging technology and is now increasingly utilized in patient care. Its advantages are noninvasiveness, superb image resolutions, and body tissue characterization. CMR is now an essential part of both cardiology and radiology training and has become part of the examination for Board certification. This book provides a condensed but comprehensive and reader friendly educational tool for cardiology fellows and radiology residents. It contains multiple choice questions similar to board examinations with concise comment and explanation about the correct answer.
From the reviews: "This book consists of multiple choice questions about cardiac MRI images with complete explanations of the correct answers and an up-to-date bibliography. ... The question-and-answer format helps trainees in cardiology and radiology who are preparing for board examinations. It also will be of interest to practicing cardiologists who want to be up-to-date with modern noninvasive technologies in cardiology. ... This is a very nice review of cardiac MRI images that includes a broad spectrum of clinical problems." (Adriana Maria Rosario, Doody's Review Service, May, 2008)
