Cardiac CT Made Easy: An Introduction to Cardiovascular Multidetector Computed Tomography

This book has been converted and optimized for reading, search and navigation on smartphones by Indextra AB.

Obtaining and interpreting images of the heart is critical to the successful management of all 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. Also new to this edition is 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.

With 425 colour illustrations, this 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.

"An impressive number of images illustrate well the authors' descriptions. In addition to the fantastic images, the book is enhanced by the descriptions of advances in the field of cardiac CT as well as the future directions and potential uses for this technology...The text is concise and well focused, making it easier to navigate the book and achieve a comprehensive understanding." - Evan S Jacobs MD for Doody’s Review Service

Editors: Paul Schoenhagen, Carl J Schultz, and Sandra S Halliburton
