About this book


In recent years, there has been increasing interest in the clinical applications of coronary angiography techniques. Coronary MRA can be instrumental in the evaluation of congenital coronary artery anomalies, however, the complexity of advanced MR pulse sequences and strategies may be overwhelming to many. Coronary MR Angiography demystifies the art of coronary MRA by providing a text in plain language with clearly illustrated imaging steps and protocols. Designed to bridge the gap between radiology and cardiology, it is written for physicians and scientists planning to incorporate this technique into their research or practice.

From the reviews:

"This book presents a comprehensive account of the emerging role of MRI in the assessment of the human coronary arterial tree. André Duerinckx has gathered together physicians and scientists from North America, Europe and the UK who are experts in their field to discuss the topic in depth. … The authors deal well with a difficult and evolving topic. The discussions are up to date and complete … ." (Richard E. Slaughter, Australasian Radiology, Vol. 47 (3), 2003)

"Since the 1990s several groups worldwide have explored the potential of magnetic resonance to substitute conventional coronary angiography. One of the pioneers was Dr. André Duerinckx, who, in his current book … has brought together the experience and expertise of the different groups. … this well illustrated book gives an excellent overview of coronary MR angiography, and can be recommended for all those who are active in the field of cardiac imaging and for those interested in starting imaging in this very exciting domain." (J. Bogaert, European Radiology, Vol. 13 (6), 2003)

"The book pleasantly surprised me in several ways. First, the book is easy to read. … Second, the book is well organized. … Finally, this book is balanced. … In summary, the book has a wealth of accessible, readable information about the technical aspects of coronary MR angiography and cardiac MR imaging. This will be a useful resource for anyone involved or interested in cardiac MR imaging at any level." (Philip A. Araoz, Radiology, September, 2003)

"The book is well organized and covers the technical principles of MR imaging … . The text is extremely well annotated and includes a complete review of the medical literature in this young but growing field. The figures are all of the highest quality … . The content itself is complete and written by many experts in the field. … Anyone seriously interested in the current status of cutting edge MR imaging or interested in its performance will appreciate Coronary Magnetic Resonance Angiography." (Lawrence M. Boxt, American Journal of Roentgenology, Vol. 180 (1), 2003)

"How interesting or relevant is this book, which has its aim of explaining MRI coronary imaging? This book is edited by an enthusiast and expert in the technique and has as its aim an exposition of the current state of the art. Does it achieve this? Yes. … there are clear descriptions of the techniques and science of coronary MRI … . As someone working in a hospital … I would put this book on the reference shelf … ." (M.R. Rees, The British Journal of Radiology, January, 2003)

"Coronary Magnetic Resonance Angiography is a glossy text containing everything that you need to know about the state of the art in Coronary Magnetic Resonance. … Overall this is a useful book for the expert who wishes to have a full text on this subject, and the generalist in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance may find it useful to dip in and out for specific reviews in areas of interest. With good quality illustrations throughout, it will prove popular to those with a specialist interest." (Prof. Dudley Pennell, Cardiology News, Vol. 5 (5), 2002)
