Main Description
Co-authored by a nuclear cardiologist and a cardiologist, this book presents practical, up-to-date information on diagnostic imaging for coronary artery disease, including coronary CT angiography, cardiac SPECT, cardiac PET, and MRI. The authors present the basic concepts and must-know facts of these modalities and offer guidelines for risk stratification of coronary artery disease. Test questions for board review are included. Acompanion Websitewill contain clinical case examples of coronary CT angiography studies and nuclear studies. Full-color images of black-and-white print CT, SPECT, and PET materials will be included. The Website will also include 31 video clips.
