MR images of the heart and vascular structures are clearer and more detailed than with other imaging methods. This detail makes MRI an invaluable tool in early diagnosis and evaluation of cardiovascular conditions. As guest editor, Michael Gotway has assembled an extraordinary group of highly accomplished authors to provide instructive articles exploring issues such as MR for the Evaluation of Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, MR Imaging of Myocardial Diseases, and MR Imaging of the Chest Wall. This is a must have clinic reference for anyone in the field of radiology.
