About this book

​​This is the first major textbook to address both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) cardiac imaging of adults for the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease (CHD). Since the introduction of faster CT scanners, there has been tremendous advancement in the diagnosis of CHD in adults. This is mostly due to the higher spatial resolution of CT compared to MR, which enables radiologists to create more detailed visualizations of cardiac anatomic structures, leading to the discovery of anomalous pathologies often missed by conventional MR imaging. This book is unique in highlighting the advantages of both CT and MR for the diagnosis of CHD in adults, focusing on the complementary collaboration between the two modalities that is possible. Chapters include discussions of case examples, clinical data, MR and CT image findings, and correlative cadaveric pictures. The chapters focus not only on the diagnosis of the primary problem, but also give readers information on visual clues to look for that often reveal associated pathologies. This book appeals primarily to diagnostic and interventional radiologists, as well as cardiologists and interventional cardiologists.

About the authors

Farhood Saremi, MD, is Professor or Radiology in the Department of Radiology at Keck Hospital, University of Southern California. He received his medical degree from and competed his radiology residency at the University of Tehran where he subsequently served as Assistant Professor of Radiology. Upon moving to the United States, Dr. Saremi completed a radiology residency at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, and fellowships in neuroradiology and body imaging. He has previously served a joint appointment of Professor of Radiology and Medicine at the University of California, Irvine, as well as Chief of Cardiothoracic Section. To further his specialization in noninvasive cardiovascular imaging, Dr. Saremi completed subspecialty fellowships in Cardiovascular MRI at Duke Medical Center and Cardiovascular CT at University of California, Irvine.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book illustrates the evolving use of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in congenital heart disease. The increased number of adults with congenital heart diseases has resulted in a need for better imaging modalities, which this book provides. The intended audience includes CT/MR technicians, cardiology fellows, cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, and structural heart disease specialists.” (Jonathan Bonilla, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2014)
