The aim of this book is to provide a compact text for practicing physicians and cardiologists or radiologists in training that contains all aspects of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging relevant for the appropriate use of this imaging modality in clinical practice. In a tutorial style, the book provides an overview of the relevant physics that govern CMR imaging and provide details on commonly accepted indications for referral. The book also provides the necessary background information to get trainees prepared for training in a CMR center. The emphasis of the book will be on practical, hands-on information in a format small enough to be carried about for ease of use. The book will be a dense but extremely portable reference for all cardiologists involved in using or requesting MRI of their cardiac patients. This will be an all-in-one resource and of great clinical value.

Review quote

From the reviews: "This is a pocket-sized, quick reference guide for cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. ... It is intended for students, physicians in training, and practitioners who are interested in a basic understanding of CMR. ... The authors have done a good job of covering all major topics in CMR in a concise book. The information is presented in an easy-to-understand, user-friendly format. This book should be used as a quick reference to understand basics of CMR." (Vinod S. Kudagi, Doody's Review Service, June, 2011)

Back cover copy

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has become an established imaging modality with an expanding range of clinical indications. All clinicians working in cardiology or imaging should therefore have a general understanding of the diagnostic information that can be obtained from CMR, the indications for referral as well as contraindications and limitations of the technique. The Cardiovascular MR Manual is a practical and compact introductory text to CMR. It includes a didactic overview of the physics of magnetic resonance imaging, cross-referencing consistently to the clinical chapters and describing the relationship between an understanding of basic MRI physics and producing better images. The authors review the practicalities of CMR from referral to screening, set-up of the study and reporting, including numerous tips and tricks on how the reader can improve the quality of their images. The book outlines the most commonly acquired image components used in CMR and details how CMR is used in clinical practice. It covers the most common referrals for CMR imaging in a structured way with imaging protocols and case examples for each indication. Throughout the book, the authors have used graphs and tables to highlight important learning aspects. The emphasis of each chapter is on providing practical, hands-on information, making this book a key resource for all training and certifying for the use of CMR.
