- Presents extensive caediac CRA images showing congenital heart disease in pediatric patients
- Introduces techniques for post-processing of of cardiac CTA information
- The work is a concise visual guide to the imaging of congenital heart disease in infants and children
Atlas of Pediatric Cardiac CTA is a concise visual guide to the imaging of congenital heart disease in infants and children. Using an organized, systematic approach through the use of clinical examples, the book focuses on the utilization of cardiac CTA imaging for pediatric patients distinct from adult patients, with an emphasis on techniques for radiation lowering, ASIR, modulation, and prospective versus retrospective imaging. Information also covers the post-processing of cardiac CT information, providing an overview of processing that can be done to maximize the amount of information provided to the clinician. The final section of the book introduces cardiac CTA evaluation search patterns, a useful guide to clinicians for evaluating cardiac CTAs in infants and newborns. Because pediatric patients often present with multiple findings and complex anatomy, this section is broken down among the major structures of the cardiovascular systems, with extensive imaging examples of the situs, lungs and airways, atria, ventricles, outflow tracts, great vessels, and coronary arteries. The Atlas of Pediatric Cardiac CTA is a valuable resource for radiologists, cardiologists, and other clinicians involved in the care of pediatric patients with congenital heart disease.
