About this book

Coronary CT angiography has attained increasing scientific attention at academic institutions and has become a highly accurate diagnostic modality. Extending this knowledge into a practice setting is the purpose of "Coronary CT Angiography". This book will assist you in integrating cardiac CT into your daily practice, while also giving an overview of the current technical status and applications. The specific features of scanners from all four main vendors are also presented providing an objective overview of noninvasive coronary angiography using CT.

About the authors

Dr. Marc Dewey has published more than 30 papers on noninvasive cardiac imaging over the last three years. Among them is a landmark paper published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in 2006 showing that CT coronary angiography is more accurate than magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Dewey’s team is well known for the cardiac imaging workshops held at the Charité and he is a renowned speaker on cardiac imaging. Experts for the scanners of all four vendors such as Dr. Martin Hoffmann will contribute to the corresponding chapters.

Reviews

From the reviews: “The authors investigate the role of CT as an adjunct to other investigations of cardiac ischaemia and also its role as a screening tool. … There are also multiple case histories and advice on how to read and report examinations. … this textbook is well written, well laid out and immensely practical for anyone at beginner or advanced level interest in coronary CT. It represents a helpful bench book that should be on the shelf of any department carrying out cardiac CT.” (John Reid, RAD Magazine, January, 2010)
