Description

This is the first monograph to focus exclusively on coronary radiology. It is particularly timely, given that the emergence of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, coupled with improvements in both hard- and software, has made reproducible non-invasive coronary imaging a practical reality. The volume commences with an introductory section on coronary anatomy, which is followed by sections on invasive and non-invasive coronary imaging, coronary calcification, and computed coronary visualization. A wide range of topics is addressed, including quantitative angiography, intravascular and quantitative ultrasound, multislice and electron beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance coronary angiography and use of the coronary calcium score as an independent risk factor. All of the latest developments, such as non-invasive intracoronary thrombus imaging, are covered. Particular care has been taken to consider the common questions confronted in asymptomatic patients. The text is supported by high-quality color images of the coronary and cardiac anatomy.
