Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Contemporary Cardiology)
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.
"The aim of the book Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is to provide information on the technology and clinical applications of this type of noninvasive imaging for assessing cardiac disease. Part of the ‘Contemporary Cardiology’ series, the 780-page resource is targeted to cardiologists, radiologists, primary care physicians and MRI technologists, and others who are interested in the technique. … The physics of the cardiac MRI is discussed as well as safety and monitoring." (Raymond Y. Kwong, Biophotonics International, March, 200
"I thoroughly enjoyed Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Although primarily a textbook for cardiologists and radiologists, radiologic technologists can benefit greatly from this interesting book. The included DVD brings the text to life. … It is both informative and entertaining. This book is an extremely good deal for the price. … I highly recommend it for the department library. As we find more and more uses for MR, being knowledgeable in present and future developments will prepare technologists for changes that are coming."
