Back cover copy

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) is a rapidly evolving tool for cardiovascular diagnosis, and is becoming increasingly important in guiding cardiovascular interventions. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging presents a state-of-the-art compilation of expert contributions to the field, each examining normal and pathologic anatomy of the cardiovascular system as assessed by magnetic resonance imaging. Functional techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging and assessment of flow velocity are emphasized, along with the exciting areas of artherosclerosis plaque imaging and targeted magnetic resonance imaging. This cutting-edge volume represents a multi-disciplinary approach to the field, with contributions from experts in cardiology, radiology, physics, engineering, physiology and biochemistry, and offers new directions in noninvasive imaging. Contemporary and comprehensive, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a vital resource for cardiologists and radiologists striving to lead the way into the future of this important field.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "The aim of the book Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is to provide information on the technology and clinical applications of this type of noninvasive imaging for assessing cardiac disease. Part of the 'Contemporary Cardiology' series, the 780-page resource is targeted to cardiologists, radiologists, primary care physicians and MRI technologists, and others who are interested in the technique. ... The physics of the cardiac MRI is discussed as well as safety and monitoring." (Raymond Y. Kwong, Biophotonics International, March, 2008) "I thoroughly enjoyed Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Although primarily a textbook for cardiologists and radiologists, radiologic technologists can benefit greatly from this interesting book. ... It is both informative and entertaining. This book is an extremely good deal for the price. ... I highly recommend it for the department library. As we find more and more uses for MR, being knowledgeable in present and future developments will prepare technologists for changes that are coming." (Connie McCready, Radiologic Technology, Vol. 79 (5), May/June, 2008) "This comprehensive book provides a strong foundation in the basic principles of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). ... is intended as a practical introductory resource for those beginning to learn about cardiovascular MRI. ... aimed at clinical cardiologists and radiologists as well as postgraduate fellows with an interest in cardiovascular MRI research. ... a well designed reference for any physician or researcher working with cardiovascular MRI." (Wade Bolton May, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008) "Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an outstanding book created by the contribution of international authors from different disciplines. ... Each of the 32 chapters contains a large number of up-to-date references suggesting the most pertinent articles in the medical literature dealing with the topic discussed. ... In conclusion, this excellent book may become a reference book for radiologists, cardiologists, and internists, as well as residents and fellows involved in the field of cardiovascular MRI."(Pietro Torricelli, Clinical Imaging, Vol. 32, September, 2008) "This textbook is intended to serve both as a practical resource for those new to the field of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and as a comprehensive review of the science underlying its use. Radiologists and cardiologists ... are among the book's intended audience. ... this book presents a comprehensive review of the state of the art in cardiovascular MR. ... a valuable addition to the library of any radiology department or cardiovascular MR training fellow or resident."
