"This text is intended as a comprehensive reference for cardiac CT imaging, and is written by preeminent leaders in the field. This book collates all relevant imaging findings of the use of cardiovascular CT and presents them in a clinically relevant and practical manner. This book highlights, in a systematic approach, the basic concepts and the utilization of CT in a wide array of the possible diagnoses such as evaluating coronary arteries, myocardium, peripheral arteries, pulmonary veins, aorta, pericardium and cardiac masses. The editors succeed in providing a comprehensive and well illustrated review of Cardiac CT and it's utilization in the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.
