Obtaining and interpreting images of the heart is critical to the successful management of any cardiac disorders. Several imaging modalities are used to help cardiologists correctly diagnose these disorders and initiate the most appropriate form of treatment. Since the first publication of this book, the use of cardiovascular CT imaging has increased exponentially. Revised and updated, Cardiac CT Made Easy: An Introduction to Cardiovascular Multidetector Computed Tomography, Second Edition* captures these advances in CT scanner technology and clinical experience. For the first time, this new edition includes online access to imaging video clips. Combining the expertise of leading cardiovascular imaging groups in North America, Europe, and Asia, this second edition continues to serve as a comprehensive introduction to the field. It focuses on the principles of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for cardiovascular applications, practical aspects of scan acquisition and interpretation, clinical indications and imaging protocols, and clinical findings of common cardiovascular disease conditions. The book is an essential resource for those new to the field and a trustworthy reference for those needing answers to specific questions or looking to update their knowledge. *Now includes an identical eBook version from VitalSource with access to video material
