CT and MR Angiography: Comprehensive Vascular Assessment

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Oct 9, 2012 - Medical - 1316 pages
Written by world-renowned experts in both CT angiography and MR angiography, this landmark work is the first comprehensive text on vascular imaging using CT and MR. It provides a balanced view of the capabilities of these modalities and practical guidelines for obtaining and interpreting images. More than 2,200 illustrations complement the text. Chapters co-authored by CT and MR authorities cover imaging of all coronary and non-coronary arteries and veins. Each chapter details indications, imaging strategies, normal and variant anatomy, diseases, surgical management, and pitfalls. The authors compare the utility of CT and MR in specific clinical situations and discuss the role of conventional angiography and ultrasound where appropriate.
