This text/DVD package is ideally suited for training courses for cardiologists and radiologists seeking certification to perform and interpret cardiovascular MRI (CMR) examinations. The authors present 37 lectures that systematically explain all key aspects of CMR. Coverage begins with an overview of principles, equipment, and imaging methods and proceeds to imaging protocols and clinical applications. An Advanced Training section includes details of imaging techniques, vascular imaging techniques, specialized cardiac imaging, and artifacts.
The text and the PowerPoint lectures on the DVD complement each other in a unique way. The book mirrors the content of the lectures and provides full explanations of concepts that are well illustrated in the slides.
DVD for Windows (PC only; Mac is available upon request).
