About this book

The multidetector CT scanner speeds diagnosis and treatment of patients. One of its many uses is to perform CT coronary angiography. Multidetector CT has generated excitement within the cardiology and radiology community as it provides clear pictures and takes less time than other non-invasive techniques, including conventional spiral and electron-beam CT which can take up to an hour or more. This atlas presents over 160 illustrations, with 116 in color and illustrates the capacity of multidetector CT for the analysis of the anatomy of the coronary arteries.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a concise introduction to cardiac CT with very good illustrations. … It briefly explains the basic principles of cardiac CT, normal and abnormal anatomy, and artifacts of cardiac CT. This book will serve as a quick reference for coronary and cardiac CT images for students, residents, postdoctoral fellows, practicing cardiologists, and radiologists. … Excellent illustrations, schematics, and references support the data. This is a very good and timely addition to the cardiac CT literature, a very rapidly developing field of noninvasive cardiology." (Zola M N’Dandu, www.doody.com, April, 2007)

"The book provides the important facts on how to perform coronary CTA and correctly interpret it. ... The references are adequate, and most are recent and from different sources. Overall, the book can serve as an easy and quick introduction to coronary CTA for beginners in the field. It would also be an excellent teaching aid for physicians in training or before attending a course about coronary CTA. I highly recommend this informative book ... to any clinician interested in learning about coronary CTA." (Isis Gayed, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 49 (8), August, 2008)
