Molecular imaging and three-dimensional echocardiography; intravascular ultrasound imaging; advances in the nuclear, cardiovascular computerized tomographic and magneticresonance imaging along with their diagnostic techniques and applications in the practice of cardiology have been extensively discussed.The role of rest and stress, electrocardiography and echocardiography has beenaccentuated. The new therapeutic modalities for the management of chronic coronary artery diseases have been discoveredand devoted to discuss.The diagnosis and management of valvular heart disease and heart failure are discussed in detail as well as chemotherapy andradiation-induced cardiovascular disorders. The progress in vascular biology, genetics and pharmacogenomics, and cardiologyhas has also been considerable. In recent years, awareness of the cost of health care, errors in the practice of cardiology and genderand geographic differences in the incidence, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disorders has risen.
