In Cardiovascular Imaging the authors deal systematically with the main imaging techniques available to clinical cardiologists: nuclear imaging, echocardiography, computerized tomography and magnetic-resonance imaging. Following a brief overview of non-invasive cardiac imaging and the stress modalities used to detect coronary disease, a mainly case-based chapter is devoted to each of the imaging techniques in turn. The final chapter takes a look into the future, particularly to molecular imaging. The text is illustrated throughout with generously-sized images.
Cardiovascular Imaging is intended for use by clinical cardiologists, cardiologists in training, radiologists, technicians and nuclear physicians.
o Deals systematically with all types of cardiac imaging: nuclear echo, CT
o Contains excellent illustrations many as case-based examples.
o Takes a look into the future—Molecular imaging

Well written, concise, easy to read and flows in an easy to understand manner...
expertly written, well referenced chapters which include very useful clinical
data from well designed research studies... A well written basic imaging textbook
that is informative for the healthcare practitioner trainee and the imaging
Fay Ahmad, Echo, 01 Jun 2010
Well written... The evidence used to support each modality is up to date...
the 18 cases covering cardiac radionuclide imaging are particularly good...
Overall it is nicely written and provides a sound text for the inexperienced
reader looking to expand his/her knowledge.

Concise and easy to read with well referenced chapters, perfect for a radiology
/ cardiology trainee, or other health care practitioner with interest in this
subject. Its strength lies in the fact that it covers all non-invasive cardiovascular
imaging modalities with a streamlined approach... Well written and presented...
Images are generally of good quality..a well written basic cardiovascular imaging
book that is informative in both its text and in the clinical cases illustrated.
