This new addition to the DI series written by many of the best-known names in cardiac and vascular imaging contains a vast amount of concentrated information about cardiovascular disease entities and numerous high-quality, state-of-the-art images. Unlike other cardiovascular imaging textbooks this text focuses not just on one imaging modality such as MRI or CT, but rather highlights the imaging findings and appropriate role of all current imaging modalities that are pertinent to individual diagnoses. The imaging material is superb throughout and the author list includes experts from all aspects of modern cardiac and vascular imaging. Images are clear and convey typical and atypical examples of specific diagnoses, and ´mimics´ and potential pitfalls that may affect diagnostic accuracy. Additionally the reader is provided with high quality colour illustrations, protocol advice, interpretive guidance, and important differential diagnoses (with example images), as well as the key imaging findings and appropriate role of other diagnostic modalities.
