About this book

In Advanced Imaging in Coronary Artery Disease, the role of several imaging techniques in diagnosing atherosclerosis, assessment of myocardial ischemia, myocardial viability, and heart failure are broadly discussed. The issues derived from cardiac PET are presented in relation to the conventional techniques, such as echocardiography, SPECT and MRI. In addition, newer imaging techniques such as intracoronary ultrasound, electron beam computed tomography, and Raman spectroscopy are given wide attention. The effects of drug treatment, such as anti-ischemic and lipid-lowering drugs, are also evaluated.
This book will assist clinical cardiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, fellows in cardiology and nuclear medicine, radiochemists, basic research fellows, and technicians, in understanding the new advances in clinical cardiac PET.
