About this book


This book provides a practically applicable guide to the use of multimodality imaging for managing aortic valve disorders. Details of how to successfully diagnose a range of aortic valve diseases is presented, with detailed information covered on the techniques and relevant criteria for pre-operative screening, surgical and transcatheter planning, intraprocedural imaging and related postoperative follow-up.


Multimodality Imaging for Cardiac Valvular Interventions, Volume 1 Aortic Valve: From Diagnosis to Decision-Making enables the reader to develop a thorough understanding and confidence of how to make appropriate clinical decisions when confronted by a range of aortic valve diseases.  It is therefore a key resource for practicing cardiac imagers, cardiologists and interventional cardiologists who encounter these patients in their day-to-day clinical practice and trainees in cardiology seeking insight on the appropriate management of these patients.
