About this book
- Unique mixture of clinical and technical information for understanding cardiac CT
- Up to date protocols, tips and tricks, and clinical indication of cardiac CT
- Deep integrated vision of cardiac CT in the context of other cardiologic diagnostic applications
During the past few years, cardiac CT (CCT) has acquired an increasingly important
role as a noninvasive imaging method that allows assessment of coronary heart
disease from both the morphological and the functional standpoint. It is quickly
becoming a primary clinical tool for the evaluation and follow-up of various
conditions related to the heart and great vessels and is providing valuable
insights into the natural history of atherosclerosis.
The rapid advances in CCT technology, the advent of new clinical applications, and the acquisition of data on prognostic value are just some of the reasons for the publication of this new edition of Clinical Applications of Cardiac CT, little more than 3 years after the first edition appeared. The text has been extensively revised and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice, and the structure and layout of the educational content have also been improved. The imaging targets, semiology, technique, and clinical applications of CCT are all covered in detail, and in addition relevant information is provided on epidemiology, clinical assessment, and the role of other diagnostic modalities. This book will prove an invaluable tool for radiologists and cardiologists alike.
