Foetal cardiology has developed dramatically into a subspecialty in the past 25 years. The majority of people examining the foetal heart are not ‘experts’ in foetal cardiology and therefore find interpreting images, particularly in case of abnormality, rather difficult. This book is designed as a practical guide, to be kept near the ultrasound machine, for all those performing foetal heart scans, but without the expertise of a foetal cardiologist. The aim is to allow the user to recognise the common forms of foetal cardiac abnormality and to appreciate the associated lesions and outcome. The book has a large number of illustrations to enable the reader to visualise the different types of problem and the various forms in which they may manifest. There are relatively few books published in the field of foetal cardiology. Whilst there is a place for large textbooks covering all aspects of foetal cardiology in detail, most people performing the foetal heart scan need an idiot’s guide about the normal foetal heart and the common things that go wrong with it. This book is aimed at all sonographers, obstetricians and radiologists performing obstetric ultrasound scans and at paediatric cardiologists, both at consultant and trainee level. Thus, this book should fulfil this unmet need in the market, although it is not designed as a comprehensive reference textbook in foetal cardiology.

Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography in Coronary Artery Disease: A Systematic Review of Image Quality, Diagnostic Accuracy

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography in Coronary Artery Disease: A Systematic Review of Image Quality, Diagnostic Accuracy
Mar 282019
 

Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in the developed countries of the world and it is becoming increasingly common in the developing world. Conventional invasive coronary angiography currently remains the gold standard for the evaluation of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. Limitations of the modality include its invasiveness, expense and time consumption, with small but substantial procedure-related complications. In recent years, systematic reviews and meta-analyses of the diagnostic value of coronary CT angiography are increasingly being used to measure the progress and innovations in the diagnostic management of patients with suspected coronary artery disease. This book provides an overview of the scientific methods used to search, analyse, appraise and synthesize studies on coronary CT angiography.

Measurement of Cardiac Deformations from MRI: Physical and Mathematical Models

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Measurement of Cardiac Deformations from MRI: Physical and Mathematical Models
Mar 282019
 

Measurement of Cardiac Deformations from MRI: Physical andMathematical Models describes the latest imaging and imag analysis techniques that have been developed at leading centers for the visualization, analysis, and understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac motion with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The use of MRI in measuring cardiac motion is particularly important because MRI is non-invasive, and it is the only modality capable of imaging detailed intramural motion within the myocardium. Biomedical engineers, medical physicists, computer scientists, and physicians interested in learning about the latest advances in cardiovascular MRI should find this book to be a valuable educational resource. In particular, it is more tutorial in nature than most of the technical papers where the research was originally published. Practitioners and researchers working in the field of cardiovascular MRI will find the book to be filled with practical technical details and references to other work, enabling the implementation of existing methods and serving as a basis for further research in the area.

Mar 252019
 


There are many modalities available to image the heart and this variety and number of scan types can prove to be daunting to radiologists and cardiologists. In addition, there are the numerous devices, stents, valves and other paraphernalia which are employed in the management of cardiac disease, which need to be recognised and identified when interpreting any of these various scans.

Containing 75 challenging clinical cases and illustrated with superb, high quality images, Cardiac Imaging covers a wide range of cardiac imaging problems from basic radiographic cases to more challenging and esoteric cases involving echocardiography, cardiac MRI, cardiac CT and myocardial perfusion imaging. The book uses an accessible format for quick assimilation. It remains an invaluable text for all radiology and cardiology professionals in practice and in training, from hospital-based doctors preparing for higher examinations to established physicians in their continuing professional development.

Atrial Fibrillation

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Atrial Fibrillation
Mar 252019
 

Atrial Fibrillation is becoming a twenty-first century epidemic. It remains the most common form of sustained arrhythmia with significant mortality, morbidity and cost to the health care system. It is the most common cause of hospital admissions among all arrhythmias. Its prevalence increases with the aging population and is often associated with many other cardiac and noncardiac conditions, most notably congestive heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, and coronary artery disease. Although significant progress in understanding the epidemiology, natural history and mechanism has been made, the antiarrhythmic therapy in patients with Atrial Fibrillation is less satisfactory.

Management of Atrial Fibrillation: A Practical Approach is the perfect pocket guide for those who care for patients afflicted by Atrial Fibrillation. From the history of the condition and the subsets of patients, to therapeutic and preventive procedures, Management of Atrial Fibrillation comprehensively covers all aspects in managing this increasingly prevalent disorder. Written by leading authorities in the field with vast experience in practical medicine, the book creates a clinically orientated, evidence based “fast fact” type resource for cardiologists, trainees and related healthcare professionals.

Multi-Modality Cardiac Imaging: Processing and Analysis

 Cardiovascular, Radiology  Comments Off on Multi-Modality Cardiac Imaging: Processing and Analysis
Mar 192019
 

The imaging of moving organs such as the heart, in particular, is a real challenge because of its movement. This book presents current and emerging methods developed for the acquisition of images of moving organs in the five main medical imaging modalities: conventional X–rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging and ultrasound. The availability of dynamic image sequences allows for the qualitative and quantitative assessment of an organ s dynamics, which is often linked to pathologies.

Constrictive Pericarditis and Cardiac Tamponade : Epidemiology, Causes and Management

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Constrictive Pericarditis and Cardiac Tamponade : Epidemiology, Causes and Management
Mar 152019
 

The major impetus for the design and execution of “Constrictive Pericarditis and Cardiac Tamponade: Epidemiology, Causes and Management” has been the remarkable advances in the diagnosis and management of constrictive pericarditis and cardiac tamponade. Recent advances in cardiac imaging including tissue Doppler imaging and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging have allowed more precise and early diagnosis of pericardial diseases. Furthermore, novel pharmacologic strategies to prevent progression of acute pericarditis to chronic pericarditis to constrictive pericarditis may limit its debilitating complications.

The book is designed to summarize and analyze critically the current state of this area for a broad audience of internists and cardiologists.
