The Atlas of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is a comprehensive, four-color visual compendium of CMR images, photomicrographs, anatomic illustrations, tables, and charts paired with extensive legends and explanations drawn from the latest peer-reviewed literature. In addition to providing historical perspective and current direction for CMR, this atlas focuses on research involving coronary artery diseases and anomalies, congestive heart failure, atherosclerotic plaques, and asymptomatic disease. The Atlas details imaging techniques, including preparation, acquisition, and processing, for study of the great vessels and carotids, the peripheral vasculature, and the coronary and pulmonary veins. Also included are discussions of the role of CMR in the emergency department and in clinical cardiology and private cardiology practices. This book is an unsurpassable professional reference.
