This ebook collates all of the present wisdom of cardiac CT and offers it in a clinically proper and functional textbook structure acceptable for either cardiologists and radiologists. the photographs were provided via an skilled set of contributing authors and signify the whole spectrum of cardiac CT.

The box of Cardiovascular CT has skilled persisted fast evolution because of: 1) advances in expertise, 2) increased spectrum of cardiovascular functions and three) major development in released information together with huge potential multicenter experiences.

As expanding numbers have entry to cardiac CT scanners, this publication offers the entire proper info in this modality. this is often an intensive replace of the former variation bringing the reader updated with the large quantity of up-to-date content material within the discipline.

The in-plane spatial resolution is now as high as 17 line pairs/cm with new high definition detector arrays. However, conventional CT angiography still has higher temporal and spatial resolution, allowing for better visualization of the smaller arteries and collateral vessels. Modern angiographic equipment has a resolution of 40 line pairs per centimeter with a six-inch field of view, the usual image magnification for coronary angiography [18]. Thus, invasive coronary angiography still has a 3–4-fold better resolution than current MDCT systems.
