About this book


This practically oriented book opens by describing the basic Cardiac MR (CMR) sequences and Cardiac CT (CCT) acquisition techniques, offering step-by-step guidelines on acquiring CMR and CCT studies and analyzing images. The main body of the book provides a comprehensive description of the study protocols most suitable for particular diseases and discusses their respective rationales. In addition, it highlights key findings for every pathological condition, complemented by extensive illustrations. The book especially addresses the needs of junior cardiologists and radiologists embarking on the regular use of MR-based and CT-based cardiac imaging, though it also offers a valuable reference manual for senior specialists. Of particular benefit is the inclusion of both CMR and CCT, techniques which are usually treated separately, despite the regular use of both at advanced Cardiac Imaging Units.
