About this book


This book presents a comprehensive overview of the major approaches to the imaging of the coronary arteries. These modalities, which include traditional angiography as well as intravascular and non-invasive imaging techniques, are used to diagnose and quantify the extent of obstructive disease due to atherosclerosis. Featuring contributions from leading authorities in the field, Imaging Coronary Atherosclerosis describes the visualization of coronary atherosclerosis through state-of the art techniques such as intravascular ultrasound, coronary  near-infrared spectroscopy, computed tomography angiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and molecular imaging. This authoritative resource discusses how these modalities enhance the understanding of the disease process and the ways in which cardiologists can integrate them into clinical practice.

From the book reviews:

“This book reviews the advances in coronary imaging, succinctly describing the roles of old and new technology. The purpose is to assist physicians in the evaluation and management of patients with coronary artery disease. The book meets the objectives using an evidence-based approach. The book is written for practitioners. It would be very useful in the hands of a cardiovascular physician.” (Bruce Wilson, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
