Learning Cardiac Magnetic Resonance: A Case-Based Guide

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Learning Cardiac Magnetic Resonance: A Case-Based Guide
Mar 272020
 

This book provides an easy-to-use guide, giving cardiologists and other physicians more confidence in training with and understanding cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) in clinical daily practice. The case-based format promotes step-by-step learning and makes this book a helpful tool for students, residents and trainees in cardiology. An updated, comprehensive review of CMR diagnostic criteria is provided for all clinical cardiovascular applications of CMR in adult patients, from ischemic heart diseases to myocarditis, and from pericardial diseases to tumors, artifacts and incidental findings.
CMR is an expanding imaging technique for cardiologists and radiologists alike. Despite several textbooks, manuals and dedicated texts, clinicians may still find it difficult to familiarize themselves with the exam and there are limited formats that provide easy access to the basic information (e.g. physics, specific applications) that are needed for training and clinical interpretation (especially case-based).

By describing the basics of physics and methodology in a straightforward manner and providing meaningful clinical examples, this book will help all cardiologists dealing with cardiac imaging as well as doctors in training to quickly and accurately interpret CMR findings in their clinical practice.

Mar 252020
 

Here is an essential text for cardiologists, heart surgeons, intensive care specialists and anyone interested in pacing. It is a comprehensive guide to contemporary devices used in the resynchronization of patients’ heartbeats. The treatment of congestive heart failure by implanted biventricular pacemakers, or cardiac resynchronization, has revolutionized the practice of implanting pacemakers and defibrillators. More cardiac resynchronization therapy devices than conventional pacemakers are now being implanted and the numbers are growing worldwide.
