Cardiology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Atlas and Manual of Cardiovascular Multidetector Computed Tomography
by Paul Schoenhagen

Atlas and Manual of Cardiovascular Multidetector Computed Tomography is accompanied by a CD that provides an additional series of movie clips illustrating selected findings.

Features:

  • Contains a large number of selected images - while the majority are acquired with 16-slice technology the recent transition to 64-slice scanners is already reflected focuses on clinical manifestations of disease, diagnostic criteria and options for management
  • Discusses clinical applications in comparison with other imaging modalities, thus clarifying the strengths and the limitations of CT in the assessment of specific clinical problems
  • Explores current standard applications such as imaging of the aorta, as well as emerging areas including coronary artery imaging
