About this book

MRI has become the preferred noninvasive imaging modality for the heart and great vessels. The substantial technological progress achieved in recent years has provided the user with state of the art MRI systems, but their optimal use can be limited by restricted awareness of the potential patient benefit and the necessity for teaching. This extensively illustrated volume, has been specifically compiled to meet these needs. Essential theoretical background information is provided, and imaging acquisition and potential pitfalls are considered in detail. Most importantly, structured guidelines are provided on the interpretation of clinical data in the wide range of cardiac pathology that can be encountered. Throughout, the emphasis is on the implementation of cardiac MRI in clinical practice.

Reviews

"...This is a high quality book for residents and practicing physicians who are new to clinical cardiac MRI. It is one of the best introductory texts to clinical cardiac MRI I have seen." 5 Stars Doody's Review, Apr. 2005

The book is superbly produced and copiously illustrated with beautifully reproduced images and comprehensive, up-to-date references. Each chapter ends with a very useful 'key points' section which condenses the foregoing comprehensive text into a few, well chosen 'bullet points' that are particularly useful for quick reference and reviewing the practical indications and efficacy of the investigative techniques. These are presented as separate sequential pages of clinical history, beautiful multiple sequence imaging, including playable movie cine studies, and then a separate page of image analysis with a pathological denouement, where appropriate.

This is, in my opinion, quite simply the best illustrated, most comprehensive text on cardiac MRI available today and an essential guide for all those involved in, or wishing to provide, this fascinating imaging service." (Dr. C. M. Turnbull, RAD Magazine, September 2006)
