Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging
A Multimodality Approach
by Mario J. Garcia

Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging will cover the fundamental principles of cardiovascular imaging modalities and their application for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases.

Unlike most other imaging textbooks, the main focus will be on the comprehensive diagnosis of clinical conditions/disease entities through the most effective cardiovascular imaging test or combination.

Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging will address the clinical utility and relative value of each test to address specific clinical questions, based on evidence and expert opinion. Each chapter will present information in the following format:

  • Overview
  • Discussion of Pathophysiology
  • Ddx/Diagnostic Evaluation
  • Prognosis Therapeutic guidance with illustration treatment pathway
A companion Website will offer the full text, ten multiple-choice questions for each chapter, still and cine images, and imaging clips.
