About this book


This book provides the most up-to-date coverage of the combined use of imaging modalities in order to acquire important functional and morphological information on cardiovascular disease and enhance disease detection. The recent developments in PET/MRI, cardiac CT, PET/CT, and SPECT/CT and their impact on clinical practice are explained, and special attention is also devoted to imaging parameters and protocols for use in practice and research. The utility of multimodality imaging techniques for diagnosis and evaluation is discussed in the context of various clinical scenarios, including ischemic cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, myocardial fibrosis, cardiac sarcoidosis, and atherosclerotic plaque disease. Written by renowned researchers and clinicians, the book is an ideal concise reference on today’s most advanced imaging techniques. It will appeal to all clinicians, trainees, and technicians who are involved in the diagnosis and risk assessment of cardiovascular disease.
