This manual is a comprehensive guide to cardiac diagnostic techniques for clinicians. Beginning with the basics, the book highlights the importance of history taking and physical examination.
The following sections provide in depth coverage of both new and more traditional diagnostic imaging techniques including electro- and echocardiogram, MRI, intravascular ultrasound, nuclear computerised tomography, and molecular imaging. Invasive diagnostic modalities and their clinical application are also discussed.
Written by internationally recognised specialists from the University of Iowa, this practical guide includes more than 700 images and illustrations.
