About this title
Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Cardiology
- Features a step-by-step guide to performing scans, providing an easy-to-follow 'recipe' for acquiring top quality images
- The quick-reference format allows rapid access to information
- Real-life images for each condition show what the images should look like and what to look for in making a diagnosis
- Key aspects for forming a diagnosis, and possible differential diagnoses, guide the reader in the correct interpretation of images and assist in distinguishing a condition from similar diagnoses
Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is a rapidly expanding imaging method in cardiology, providing unparalleled diagnostic information about the heart. It is, however, a complex technique, and though the availability of scanners is increasing quickly, the expertise required to perform the scans is less widely spread. While no book is a substitute for experience, this handbook provides an invaluable guide to performing and interpreting the scans that should aid both new and experienced operators.
Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is an indispensable guide to performing and interpreting CMR scans. What to look for, which sequences to include, how to acquire them, and how to interpret the images are all included in the handbook. The information is provided in a quick-reference, easy-to-use format, with many images from real cases, and is designed to sit on the scanning console or in the office, providing a step-by-step guide to aid the CMR practitioner at every stage. All areas of cardiovascular imaging are covered, including tips and tricks for optimal imaging and how to avoid and spot artefacts. From patient safety. through differential diagnoses of tricky images, to an easy-to-understand section on the science behind magnetic resonance, all aspects are covered in this concise yet comprehensive guide to this specialist area. Whether a novice or expert in the field, every reader should find this book a useful tool. It is an invaluable reference that no CMR department should be without.
