Cardiovascular Computed Tomography


Add your own review!

Overview

Cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) has rapidly become an important imaging tool in cardiology and is now a compulsory component of the core curriculum for cardiology in UK and Europe. It is a complex imaging modality, however, with many aspects to master: CT theory, image acquisition and analysis, interpretation and reporting. This practical handbook is therefore essential reading for both training and reference for all cardiovascular CT users, including cardiologists, radiologists and radiographers, providing practical guidance on performing, analysing and interpreting cardiovascular CT scans in an accessible format.
