Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance
Established and Emerging Applications
by Albert Lardo
Nicolas A. Chronos
Zahi Adel Fayad
and Valentin Fuster

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance:

  • Provides a concise dissemination of information on the dizzying array of new and evolving applications
  • Includes contributions from Drs. Lardo and Fayad, pioneers in the field of cardiovascular MR and Dr. Fuster, one of the world's experts on vulnerable plaque
  • Contains more than 700 halftones, 65 color images, and 126 line drawings
  • Emphasizes imaging of the vulnerable plaque and other cardiac disorders
  • Discusses how to set up an MR lab in the hospital and develop cost-effective strategies for CMR
Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance consolidates a wide and growing body of information into a single balanced source.

Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance provides current and practical information on established foundational applications of CMR.

Its presentation of state-of-the-art therapeutic applications in various stages of development gives the novice and experienced cardiologist a look into the future of CMR.
