  • Updated and heavily illustrated textbook in cardiovascular CT
  • Contains information on new imaging technologies including iterative reconstruction, HD scanners and dual energy
  • Includes use of CT in TAVR, perfusion, congenital and peripheral cardiovascular imaging
This book collates all the current knowledge of cardiac CT and presents it in a clinically relevant and practical format appropriate for both cardiologists and radiologists. The images have been supplied by an experienced set of contributing authors and represent the full spectrum of cardiac CT.

The field of Cardiovascular CT has experienced continued rapid evolution due to:
  • 1) advances in technology,
  • 2) expanded spectrum of cardiovascular applications and
  • 3) significant growth in published data including large prospective multicenter studies.
As increasing numbers have access to cardiac CT scanners, this book provides all the relevant information on this modality. This is an extensive update of the previous edition bringing the reader up-to-date with the immense amount of updated content in the discipline.
