Research and Markets: Computed Tomography of the Cardiovascular System - Technical Improvements Translating into New Applications and Enhanced Accuracy


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Computed Tomography of the Cardiovascular System" book to their offering.

Computed tomography of the heart and cardiovascular system continues to show an impressive and tremendously successful development. Technical improvements translate into new applications and enhanced diagnostic accuracy and the new diagnostic opportunities may potentially be beneficial for many individuals with known or suspected cardiovascular disease.

In order to assure that the potential of cardiovascular CT will optimally be used for patient care, a continued, strong joint effort concerning education and training, further research, and advocacy will be necessary.

The combined knowledge, experience, and input of all clinicians and researchers in the field will best serve that purpose. Cardiovascular Computed Tomography is the first textbook to cover the heart, cardiovascular and peripheral vascular systems and will provide the reader with the necessary background information to perform cardiac CT on symptomatic patients and asymptomatic individuals for the accurate assessment of underlying disease.

Key Topics Covered:

Section I: Introduction

Section II: Clinical Cardiovascular Computed Tomography

Section III: Coronary Artery Calcium Scanning

Section IV: Computed Tomographic Coronary Angiography

Section V: Other Applications of Cardiac and Coronary Computed Tomography

Section VI: Peripheral Computed Tomographic Angiography

Section VII: Investigational and Future Uses of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography
