About this book


Cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) has evolved from novel technology to research tool to essential clinical imaging modality at an astounding pace. The technology has great relevance for many medical and surgical disciplines focused on the treatment of cardiovascular disease. Thanks to the ability of CT to image anatomical, physiological and tissue characteristics of large and small vessel within seconds, and reconstruct multimodal two- and three-dimensional images within minutes, cardiovascular CT has facilitated practical clinical applications important to cardiovascular diagnosis, risk stratification and procedure guidance.

Handbook of Cardiovascular CT: Essentials for Clinical Practice has been created as a primer to assist cardiologists, radiologists and other readers involved in cardiac imaging. The new wave in CT technology requires education and training focused on providing an understanding of the essentials of methodology, technique, and clinical image analysis. Reviewing the practical techniques and interpretation of the modality, this book’s compact format provides a handy reference tool and provides the answers to important cardiovascular CT questions. The breadth and depth of the knowledge of the individual authors also ensures that the concise chapters are geared towards covering the essential topics, but with additional depth provided by the inclusion of teaching pearls as well as selected key images.
