Manual of Cardiac Diagnosis

by Kanu Chatterjee

This book, Manual of Cardiac Diagnosis, deals with issues related to cardiac diagnosis. The book extensively discusses the advancements in diagnostic techniques and their clinical applications. The role of resting and stress electrocardiography and echocardiography has also been elaborated upon. Recent times have witnessed the development of newer diagnostic techniques and the refinement of older methods for detection of cardiovascular pathology. Molecular imaging, three-dimensional echocardiography, and intravascular ultrasound imaging have been introduced. Advances have occurred in cardiovascular nuclear, computerized tomographic, and magnetic resonance imaging. The success of cardiac angiography stimulated the continued development of selective catheter coronary arteriography, which is the driving force in the progress and increased effectiveness of coronary artery bypass surgery, prosthetic valve replacement, and valve repair. With contributions from nationally and internationally recognized experts, this book is intended to serve as a useful diagnostic manual for students and practitioners.
