(BQ) Part 1 book "Cardiovascular Imaging" presents the following contents: An overview of the assessment of cardiovascular disease by noninvasive cardiac imaging techniques, cardiac computed tomography and angiography, nuclear cardiac imaging, echocardiographic imaging.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Cardiovascular Imaging" presents the following contents: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (clinical applications, emerging applications of cardiovascular MRI), future prospects of cardiovascular (molecular imaging, specific cardiovascular applications of molecular imaging, multidisciplinary cardiovascular imaging programs).
he third edition of Cardiovascular Medicine is the product of our continuing
effort to provide an authoritative and comprehensive review of important,
clinically relevant cardiovascular disease topics. As compared to the second
edition, this third edition contains 27 new chapters and a 30% expansion and update
of mechanistic, diagnostic, and therapeutic approaches to cardiovascular medicine.
Each chapter is written by one or more experts on the topic. We have also added
two additional editors, Dr. Hein J.J.
Since its introduction in the early 1970s, computed tomography (CT) has become a
robust modality to evaluate extracranial, thoracic, and abdominal vascular distributions.
It has become a gold standard to non-invasively image the aorta, pulmonary arteries,
great vessels, renal and peripheral arteries. However, cardiac anatomy evaluation with
this modality was not possible, due to rapid cardiac motion and slow image acquisition
As part of The European Society of Cardiology Education Series, this book is focused
on the use of non-invasive imaging in clinical cardiology. Currently, the
main non-invasive imaging modalities include echocardiography, nuclear
imaging, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), and (multi-slice) computed
tomography (MSCT). Rather than providing another textbook on imaging
techniques, the central theme in this book is how to use these different imaging
modalities to solve clinical problems that physicians encounter on a regular
Because of the availability of powerful computational techniques, new modality
techniques such as Computer-Aided Tomography (CAT), Magnetic Resonance
Imaging (MRI) and others, and because of the new techniques of imaging processing
(machine vision), the lives of many patients will be saved, and the quality of
all our lives improved. This marriage of powerful computer technology and medical
imaging has spawned a new and growing generation of young dynamic doctors
who hold PhDs in physics and/or computer science, along with their MDs.
In developed countries, cancer is the second leading cause
of death exceeded only by cardiovascular diseases. There are
more than 100 types of cancers that can inflict any part of the
body. In 2005, 7.6 million people died of cancer, which constitutes
13% of the 58 million deaths worldwide. Approximately,
1.3 million people are diagnosed each year with cancer in the
United States, and ~ 1500 of them die every day.
Despite worldwide efforts to assess and control cardiovascular risk factors, cardiac
diseases and in particular coronary artery disease (CAD) are still the foremost causes
of death in the developed countries of Western Europe, North America and Asia and
are becoming increasingly common in Eastern Europe and the developing world
(Deanfield 2001). Approximately one in five deaths is currently related to cardiac
disease in Europe and the US. Nearly 500,000 deaths caused by CAD are reported
every year in the US, over 600,000 in Europe, 170,000 of these in Germany alone.
