Based on advances in scanner and software technology, cardiovascular imaging with multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is developing into an important clinical diagnostic tool for cardiac disease.
Combining the in-depth coverage of a text with the diagnostic utility of a manual, this superb guide provides a simple introduction to the principles of MDCT for cardiovascular applications from the perspective of the CT technologist as well as the clinician.
Detailed and essential reading, Cardiac CT Made Easy:
contains a large number of selected images
focuses on clinical manifestations of disease, diagnostic criteria and options for management
reviews major anti-arrhythmic drugs and new agents coming into use
discusses clinical applications in comparison with other imaging modalities, thus clarifying the strengths and the limitations of CT in the assessment of specific clinical problems
explores current standard applications such as imaging of the aorta, as well as emerging areas including coronary artery imaging.
Practical and fully up to date, this is an important book for cardiovascular clinicians and technologists using CT imaging technology, cardiac specialists and nurses, and imaging physicists.
